    This is an absolutely outstanding introduction to Barth, his times, and his theology. It's so good that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone as one of the best ways to get a taste of his thought. Of course, there's a lot that it doesn't cover--how could it be otherwise?--but it does an excellent job at the vital task of explaining the developments in protestant theology post-Enlightenment and situating Barth as a leading voice in the turmoil that was Europe the first half of the 20th century. If you want to learn about Barth, this is a good starting point, better than most in fact--there's an awful lot of unfortunate and unfair misinformation about him circulating in many theology circles. As a Logos purchasing strategy, it's best to get this as part of a bundle with the rest of the "Armchair" series, but be aware that they are very mixed quality. In this one I found the "humorous" cartoons, some quite irreverent, rather jarring in their contrast to the excellence of the writing, which is both scholarly and eminently readable.
