Barth's "Göttingen Dogmatics" - §2: Preaching as the Starting Point and Goal of Dogmatics

More on Barth’s first dogmatics lectures! This episode addresses the relationship between dogmatics and preaching. We get a number of Barth “greatest hits” – like an early form of his approach to the three-fold Word of God (revelation, scripture, and preaching), and his distinction between regular and irregular dogmatics. But the central issue is the relationship between God’s word and the human word of preaching. Also, I use the idea of Sachkritik to expand on Barth’s definition of theology.

This is part 3 of a multi-part series, and you can find the series index here.
