MEDIA REVIEWS
Embarking on the study of Barth's Church Dogmatics is no easy matter; this careful selection, with its perceptive introduction and commentaries, is an excellent guide to exploring one of the monumental texts of modern theology. -- John Webster, University of Aberdeen, UK
This volume is a welcome resource for both teachers and students of Karl Barth's theology. Michael Allen's well-chosen excerpts from the Church Dogmatics are lengthy enough to provide a feel for Barth's sprawling theological discourse and wide-ranging enough to provide an appreciation of the full scope of his dogmatic thought. The introduction and notes locate Barth's work within the context of classical and modern divinity and direct readers to the best English-language literature on the Basel theologian. Those who have heretofore feared the prospect of exploring Karl Barth's massive Church Dogmatics may now take courage thanks to Allen's able guidance. -- Scott R. Swain, Reformed Theological Seminary, USA
This is a judiciously selected and carefully introduced series of key readings from the Church Dogmatics. Allen has done the newcomer to Barth a great service by preparing this collection of texts from what remains the most important work in theology of recent times. This volume is a fine resource both for inspiring readers to venture further into Barth's work for themselves and for encouraging students to engage appreciatively and critically with its content. -- Paul T. Nimmo, The University of Edinburgh, UK
[I]t's with relief that we turn to this judicious selection of major passages accompanied by perceptive introductions and notes, to delve into one of the great modern thinkers. * The Religious Book Club *
The field of Karl Barth Studies continues to flourish in North America. This is the first Barth anthology published since Clifford Green's Karl Barth: Theology and Freedom (1988). Allen brings the contemporary student up to date on recent scholarship through ample bibliographies and thorough footnotes...Allen has offered an amazing thorough overview of key themes in Dogmatics in a compressed format. -- J. Scott Jackson * Anglican Theological Review *
