Over the next five years I am completing a degree in theology at the Pontifical University of Maynooth.Â I will be continuing to work for the Presbyterian Church in Maynooth for a good chunk of that time.Â My silly wife insists we ought not spend 100s of euros on books I may never read.Â So, I have decided to take advantage of the library in Maynooth and finally read Karl Barth’s Church Dogmatics.
If you read at a rate of 5 pages a day it takes about 5 years to finish Dogmatics. So that is what I am aiming to do. Every week I will take something from my 35 pages and blog it here, in about 100 words, to create a useful, interesting and mis-matching overview of this great work. Or at least that is what I hope.
Your Correspondent, 1983 is the last time Dogmatics Vol I was checked out
