"Representing the only larger dogmatics ever completed by Karl Barth, the Gvttingen Dogmatics, a profoundly pastoral work, prefigures the unfinished Christian Dogmatics of M]nster and the Church Dogmatics of Bonn and Basel. In this first volume Barth defines dogmatics as "scientific reflection on the Word of God"-the Word that is (1) spoken by God in revelation, (2) recorded in holy scripture, and (3) proclaimed and heard in Christian preaching. After his lengthy prolegomena on the threefold form of the Word of God, Barth discusses in depth the doctrine of God. His treatment of the other major doctrinal loci in his preaching-oriented dogmatics-anthropology, reconciliation, and redemption (eschatology)-will appear in Volume 2. Introduction by Daniel. L. Migliore."

Review:

H. Martin Rumscheidt
Atlantic School of Theology
"The"Gottingen Dogmatics"is Barth's first venture at a scholarly dogmatics that has the form, order, and substance he believed necessary. It gives, therefore, important clues about how his theology was to proceed in taking its final, though unfinished, shape. For historical reasons alone this work is important, since the genesis and evolution of an influential theology are given here."
John D. Godsey
Wesley Theological Seminary
"Having Barth's earliest lectures on dogmatics available after all these years is like finding buried treasure in one's backyard! What Barth has to say about theology, and especially about preaching, is so fresh and pertinent that I found it hard to put the book down. Barth's careful and convincing argument as to why Christian theology ought to be based on the Word of God rather than on pious experience needs to be heard today. . . . I can wholeheartedly recommend the"Gottingen Dogmatics"as a refreshing entree into Barth's thinking about the humble yet crucial discipline called 'dogmatics.'""
