H. Martin Rumscheidt —Atlantic School of Theology "The Göttingen Dogmatics is Barth's first venture at a scholarly dogmatics that has the form, order, and substance he believed necessary. It gives, therefore, important clues about how his theology was to proceed in taking its final, though unfinished, shape. For historical reasons alone this work is important, since the genesis and evolution of an influential theology are given here."John D. Godsey —Wesley Theological Seminary "Having Barth's earliest lectures on dogmatics available after all these years is like finding buried treasure in one's backyard! What Barth has to say about theology, and especially about preaching, is so fresh and pertinent that I found it hard to put the book down. Barth's careful and convincing argument as to why Christian theology ought to be based on the Word of God rather than on pious experience needs to be heard today. . . . I can wholeheartedly recommend the Göttingen Dogmatics as a refreshing entrée into Barth's thinking about the humble yet crucial discipline called 'dogmatics.'"
