Since its publication in the United States, the Dogmatics has remained relatively inaccessible to pastors, students, and even many professors due to its cost. That is now changing. Hendrickson Publishers, with its publication of the 14-volume set of the Church Dogmatics, has overcome this obstacle by providing an economic, hardback edition.
Hendrickson is reproducing the original 14-volume set edited by T.F. Torrance and G.W. Bromiley, first published more than forty years ago by T&T Clark. The new edition will contain the entire 14-volume set and all its contents as it was originally published by T&T Clark. Barth's extensive notes will also remain, most of which remain in their original languages. The set is now affordable, and accessible to all who wish to read Barth, engage him, and evaluate his theology in their own study.
It is an excellent opportunity for those who have had little exposure to Barth, or merely read about him, to become more familiar with him. As a theologian who increasingly influences Protestant's understanding of the Trinity, Christology, Creation, Ecclesiology, the Christian life, ethics, biblical interpretation, and the Christian's role in culture Barth has become required reading for all who take theology seriously.
As Calvin's Institutes was the most influential theological masterpiece of the Reformation, there is little doubt that Barth's Dogmatics is emerging as the most eminent attempt to articulate an orthodox theology in the modern period.

--London Quarterly and Holborn Review
One of the most important theological works ever written, Barth's magnum opus is essential for serious students of Christian doctrine. Now this closely reasoned masterpiece of brilliant insight into the work and attributes of God, creation, Jesus, and the Christian life is available in a handsome hardcover set. The 14 volumes of this omnibus collection include:
THE DOCTRINE OF THE WORD OF GOD
I.1 Doctrine of the Word of God
I.2 Revelation of God
THE DOCTRINE OF GOD
II.1 Knowledge of God
II.2 Election of God
THE DOCTRINE OF CREATION
III.1 Work of Creation
III.2 The Creature
III.3 Creator and Creature
III.4 The Command of God
THE DOCTRINE OF RECONCILIATION
IV.1 Doctrine of Reconciliation
IV.2 Jesus Christ, Servant and Lord
IV.3.1 Jesus Christ, the True Witness
IV.3.2 Jesus Christ, the True Witness
IV.4 The Christian Life
V. Index with Aids for the Preacher (Including short paragraph descriptions of each section; Scripture, name, and subject indices; and weekly sermon ideas with Scriptures for the church year)
Barth's "canon of conviction" is evangelical because it is God-centered--stressing God's encounter with man rather than man's discovery of God; and its object, source, and norm is the transcendent God of the gospel. Church Dogmatics reveals Barth's fully developed theology, and his writings continue to instruct and guide preachers, teachers, students, congregations, and laypeople worldwide today.

Church Dogmatics is a classic. It needs no defense. I'm pretty sure that's the whole point of a classic. The defense must be made by those who choose not to read it.
In other words, sell your car and buy this set (or save up and you can keep your car!).

Yes, the most important theological publication of the 20th Century. A must have. Abraham and Moses, Isaiah and Paul, Augustine and Calvin will have expected you to have read these volumes! Don't arrive in heaven and not have read Karl Barth's Church Dogmatics!

I appreciate the life and work of Karl Barth and to have a copy of the Church Dogmatics at such a great price is a real blessing. Thanks!
Q: Greek, Hebrew and Latin Translation Just how extensive is Barth's usage of Greek, Hebrew and Latin? My handle of the former two is fairly elementary (Latin is nil). Would it be better to opt for the study edition? Or does the price make the languages worth bearing with?
