A Nice Little Intro to Barth

I now consider my seminary theological formation thoroughly deficient (though I consider my Biblical Studies training to have been excellent).  Rather than reading Barth, we mostly read about Barth.  Too much time in Spiritual Formation class I guess … Ha!  I wish I had read Barth in Spiritual Formation.  Anyway, for those like myself who might consider Church Dogmatics a little daunting, I think the book I have been reading, God Here and Now, is a really good intro into Barth’s thought (though it’s hard to see how I could know enough to make that claim).  It is only a collection of short essays, but at the same time I am reading Barth and not just about him.
