Building on his opening treatment of the Doctrine of the Word of God, Barth begins the second half of this foundational doctrine with christology, providing detailed exposition of the incarnation of the Word. He then turns to pneumatology, describing the importance of the Holy Spirit in the event of revelation. Also included is Barth's doctrine of Scripture, which in his language, becomes a witness to divine revelation only through the work of the Holy Spirit. Closing the volume stands Barth's doctrine of preaching, which also serves as a witness to God's revelation when it creates obedience to the Word of God. Barth stresses the themes of freedom and obedience throughout this closing volume of the Doctrine of the Word 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.
