A "Classic" Introduction to Karl Barth's Church Dogmatics May 9, 2005
Bromiley was one of the translators of the Church Dogmatics and so who better to begin the journey in reading Barth? This is an introductory work designed to get one into the very difficult Dogmatics. Bromiley does a marvelous job of distilling Barth's sometimes long and winding argument/ theme into an understandable and manageable length. If one were to want to begin reading through Barth, this is a necessary book to have on the desk with you. A classic intro by someone extremely knowledgeable regarding the sujbect matter.
Dogmatics in nuce Apr 13, 2000
This book is an exposition and condensation of the nearly 10,000 pages of Barth's Church Dogmatics, of which Bromiley was one of the major translators. Bromiley's book is a fine resource not only for the obvious reason that it provides swift access to theology of the massive tomes of Barth's Dogmatics, but also for Bromiley's insightful and lucid explications and summaries. Being structured after the Dogmatics, it is not only a typical introduction, but it gives an idea of the Dogmatics in nuce. It is a highly recommended stepping stone to Barth's magisterial work.
