Or is it the Dogmatics has landed? Either way, the box arrived today with my brand new set of Karl Barth’s Church Dogmatics. Now I just need to find a place to put them.
For those of you wondering why I would need to purchase the Dogmatics when I’ve been studying Barth for a while now, it’s because I’ve never had a complete set of the Dogmatics. I’ve been piecing mine together as needed, and, until now, I was still missing three volumes. At the sale price of $99 for the whole set, it was actually more expensive to purchase the three volumes I was missing than just to buy the whole set all at once. So, now I have a really spiffy set of new books. (Isn’t “spiffy” a great word?)
Unfortunately, I’ll have to hold on to most of my older volumes because I don’t want to let go of all the underlining and note-taking they represent. But, it does look like two of the volumes are still in new condition. Maybe I’ll offer them up as giveaways soon.
