Recently I had the interest in reading Barth, so I attempted his Church Dogmatics. After a failed attempt to understand his writing, a friend recommended starting with Evangelical Theology...and a great recommendation it was!

This book was a great reminder of what the goal of theology is and who it is about. Barth does a great job of reminding us of the active living God, the Jesus who is always on the move, lest we confine him to static human laws, principles, and ideas. I think it's such a poignant read in a time of the church when principles of the Christian faith, the church, and culture are being questioned (and with good reason). And also when many, such as the Neo-Reformed movement, have dug their heals into the dirt. Barth reminds us not to get caught in the static web that stubborn theology can create.

The book structure was great with the 4 main sections: the Place, Existence, Threat, and Work of theology. And each section ended with an indispensable idea: The Spirit, Faith, Hope, and Love.

Even if you're not that into academic theology books or theologians, I would recommend this book to anyone who is at least a little bit curious. This work by Barth is a prophetic statement in our day.
