This unit provides a brief overview of Barth’s life, theological development, and legacy, including discussion of the historical, social, political, and theological contexts in which he worked. This unit will focus on actually reading, interpreting and discussing substantial sections of Barth’s work, after providing a brief sampling of interpretive approaches to Barth’s work and instruction on Barth’s theological method. Overall, we cover a study of various theological loci as presented by Karl Barth, such as his doctrines of the trinity, God, Christology, pneumatology, humanity, election, and reconciliation. This is accompanied by a detailed study of various works from different periods from Barth’s career such as his early lectures, Romans commentaries, and some later sections of the Church Dogmatics.
