This book came at a time when I needed it, questioning even God. As a biography, you see Barth bouncing among and embracing different theologies as his thoughts mature. Just as artists flip the canvas upside down as part of the process of evaluating their ongoing work, so did Barth which was, as I said, just what I needed.

In reading I gained a sincere appreciation for the man. I find myself disagreeing with some of his views but, judging from (theologically) where he started, I found his journey of faith rather remarkable. During his career, German theological liberalism was nearing its zenith and, whatever quibbles I may (and certainly do) have with some of his theology, he was certainly swimming upstream. His very public chastising of his theological colleagues over their support for Hitler, and his subsequent authoring of the Barmen Declaration (a very orthodox work) were acts of significant theological and personal courage.
If this book is indicative of the series, I'll be reading more of these "for Armchair Theologians" books.

Good introduction to Barth for readers who quail at the thought of tackling the theologian's writings on their own. The author offers an overview of Barth's theological development and an interesting interpretation and defense of his Church Dogmatics (which most of us will never read, if we're honest about it). For those who want to dip their toe in Barth's thought his Dogmatics in Outline is a great book.

This book was amazing. Very short, funny, serious, great cartoons, and explains Barth's thinking and theology.

No need to articulate about an author who most adapt at framing ideas to ponder.

Who would ever describe a book about a theologian as fun? Yet that is just what this is. The drawings by Ron Hill are delightful and thought provoking. Just looking at them and trying to understand the artist's intentions was a delight.

This is a fine introduction to Barth's life and thought. Dr. Franke traces Barth's life and maps out his journey as one of the premier theologians of modern times. Franke's introduction to Church Dogmatics is a very helpful guide to that massive work.

I am a pastor who tries to read broadly. These little concise "Armchair" books have proven to be a welcome half-way point between deep study and reading for entertainment. They take on deep and solemn subjects but are so well written and easily grasped as to give one an evening of truly relaxing and enjoyable reading. You can finish and have had the pleasure of a good book and feel also that you have been "working," by studying theology! A great combination!

I need to pass these books along to the laity of the church and see how easy they are to digest for those without a formal theological education. About this series I say, "Keep them coming!"

Great resource for theologian - practitioners and laymen who are thinking and theologizing.
Always wanted to know a bit more about Barth. This book give a foundation for a beginner to find a footing and then move onto sore in-depth study of his works. I'm going with word of God, word of man and I'll follow that with Romans.
