Barth's opening part-volume in the Doctrine of Reconciliation sets forth his theology of the atonement. This central doctrine of the Christian faith is exposited in a characteristic Barthian triad of confession: Jesus Christ is very God, very Man, and God-Man. In the present volume Barth treats the first theme in this three-fold confession, beginning with Christ as the true God who becomes human, taking the form of a servant.
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.
