After completing his prolegomena to dogmatics, Barth moves on to the content of the dogmatic project in treating the doctrine of God. In doing so, he divides this volume's explication into the knowledge of God and the reality of God. Barth avers that the knowledge of God is grounded in God's action, which is communicated in the event of revelation. As Eberhard Jungel phrases it, for Barth "God's being is in becoming," which describes a forward looking, dynamic understanding of God's nature. Barth closes this half-volume with detailed exposition of the attributes of God.
Described by Pope Pius XII as the most important theologian since Thomas Aquinas, the Swiss pastor and theologian, Karl Barth, continues to be a major influence on students, scholars and preachers today.Barth's theology found its expression mainly through his closely reasoned fourteen-part magnum opus, Die Kirchliche Dogmatik. Having taken over 30 years to write, the Church Dogmatics is regarded as one of the most important theological works of all time, and represents the pinnacle of Barth's achievement as a theologian.T&T Clark International is now proud to be publishing the only complete English translation of the Church Dogmatics in paperback.
