The purpose of this series of articles is to acquaint the reader with the theology of the leading Protestant theologian of our day, Karl Barth. It is often more rewarding to examine one theologian of real stature rather than dissipate our limited space upon a more sketchy overview of the ideas of two or three well-known theologians. And Barth is the man whom we must still choose today. Certainly Bultmann and Tillich, whose theologies are philosophically oriented and structured, will have far less to offer the Christian Church. Brunner, who really never left the ground of liberalism, is no longer taken seriously by many today. Barth, however, whose works are now coming out rapidly in translation, is still a theologian to be reckoned with. Only lately a rash of books has appeared, commenting on his theology.
