Leading Barth interpreter Kimlyn Bender provides an introduction to the essence of Barth's theology, emphasizing themes that speak to the concerns of the church, the pastorate, and Christian ministry. This book serves as a companion to the first volume of Barth's Church Dogmatics, offering straightforward help for reading and understanding that work in its entirety as well as developing the skills necessary to read more of Barth's writings. Reading schedules (for both the first volume and the complete Church Dogmatics) and discussion questions for individuals and groups are included.From the Back Cover"For those of us who want Karl Barth to be a valued partner in our preaching and ministry, this is the book we've been awaiting. Kimlyn Bender hereby establishes himself as a great interpreter of Barth's theology for the church today. He gives us a grand invitation to dive into the riches of Barth's theology of proclamation and shows us the relevance of Barth's theology for the church today."--Will Willimon, Duke Divinity School; author of Conversations with Barth on Preaching"In his close reading of and illuminating commentary on Barth's Church Dogmatics I/1 and I/2, Kimlyn Bender provides masterful exposition of the distinctive themes and patterns of Barth's theology evident in the first volume of his magnum opus and persisting in all later volumes. In addition to skillfully unpacking Barth's understanding of the purpose, method, and content of dogmatics, Bender also underscores the indispensability of sustained theological inquiry in the life and ministry of the church. Reading Karl Barth for the Church will be a valuable resource, not only for serious students of Barth's thought but also for many pastors and church teachers who may wonder whether and why theology really matters."--Daniel L. Migliore, Princeton Theological Seminary"We all need guides, especially to great theological literature. Kimlyn Bender provides an excellent resource for reading the first volume of Karl Barth's Church Dogmatics. His focus is on Barth's enduring relevance for serving the faith and life of the church today. Barth's main themes emerge, and we are equipped to identify these as expressed in later volumes of Barth's work. Bender helps us recognize the importance and impact of these themes for the church's ongoing witness to Jesus Christ. Bender is a sure guide for reading Barth. With deep understanding and insight, he shows Barth to be a significant resource for Christian life and ministry."--Donald K. McKim, author of Breakfast with Barth: Daily Devotions and editor of How Karl Barth Changed My Mind"Poets rightly refuse requests to say what their poems mean. In a similar way Barth's theology cannot be 'explained,' which makes it challenging to write about. But Bender has found a way to help us become better readers of Barth by showing us how Barth's Dogmatics really is a Church Dogmatics. I suspect Barth would have liked Bender's reading, which is high praise."--Stanley Hauerwas, Duke Divinity School"Confident that the voice of Karl Barth can reach and teach and theologically form Christians beyond the academy, Kimlyn Bender has put together a very welcoming guidebook to encourage people to read the Church Dogmatics for themselves. Bender is well aware of the obstacles readers will face in doing so; in this book he provides a set of tools to keep new readers out of the ruts of some settled misinterpretations, to find detours around those places where Barth's own idiosyncrasies distract from his main point, and to draw attention to the great things that Barth found in God's revelation."--Fred Sanders, Torrey Honors Institute, Biola University"Karl Barth is well worth reading, but he can be intimidating to nonscholars, especially students, laity, and even pastors. Yet he wrote Church Dogmatics because he thought theology was meant to serve rather than distract from the church. That is why Barth thought his whol
