The audio version is very helpful

Inspired to find out more about Karl Barth after hearing clergy referring to him from time to time and his close association with Dietrich Bonhoeffer I was anxious for the opportunity to listen to this book. For the lay person that is trying to get a better understand of Christian theology Karl Barth is a cornerstone of modern theological thought. For me being able to listen and then re-read the book was essential to my being able to stay with the book and reaching a comprehension of the material.

One Of The Great Theistic Thinkers...

It is too bad that Christian thought has, for the most part, descended to the likes of Joel Osteen and the other "positive attitude" self-helpers that turn out followers who not only have trouble reciting the most rudiimentary Biblical stories but also have grave difffitulty formulating more than the most abcendarian argument for why they supposedly hold the beliefs they do. Bonhoeffer, Barth and Tillach are three of the great modern theologians, and their work is more important than ever, for its depth and breadth of understanding of the Christian faith and the navigation of its deeper waters and swifter currents. Indeed, the new atheism of Dawkins, Dennett, Harris and Hitchens would have more difficulty taking out religious people one by one if there were more who had actually read their scriptures, supplimented by brilliant texts as this one by Barth. A must have for the real theological thinker.
