The German theologian Karl Barth stands as one of the giants in modern theology, whose theology has been described as “orthodox and modern.” Yet, most are afraid to read his works, daunted by the voluminous pages of Church Dogmatics, his magnum opus. This course will introduce participants to the thoughts and theology of Barth through one of his more accessible works Dogmatics in Outline (156 pages only), a collated series of lectures on the Apostles’ Creed that Barth gave during his time at the University of Bonn (1947). Come and hear the substance of the Christian faith as proclaimed by Barth, and experience for yourself this man whose views are orthodox and faithful to the Tradition but yet modern and insightful for our time.
