One of the greatest theologians of the twentieth century, Karl Barth is best known for his monumental Church Dogmatics, a work that changed the modern theological landscape. It is less well known that Barth taught three distinct cycles of course sin dogmatics during his lifetime. His first effort consisted of a series of lectures at the University of Göttingen in 1924–1925. These provocative lectures are available in English in The Göttingen Dogmatics, an accessible and profoundly pastoral work.
A superb, substantive introduction by Daniel L. Migliore, professor of systematic theology at Princeton Theological Seminary, highlights the theological historical significance of The Göttingen Dogmatics and compares this work with Barth's Church Dogmatics. Migliore points out, among other things, the intimate bond between dogmatics and preaching: in the Göttingen lectures we see a Barth "who tenaciously does theology -- indeed defines theology -- in relation to preaching a pastoral praxis."
