Reviews - What do our customers think?
Seminal Mangina  Nov 1, 2006
I agree with the review above who called this book "seminal." Mangina never beats around the bush in his elucidations of Barth's incredibly dense prose. While I find Barth enlightening but incredibly difficult to read, I absolutlely savor Mangina. If you're curious at all, Mangina is well worth exploring.
 
Best Introduction to Barth Available  Aug 20, 2005
As a graduate student in Divinity School, there are a handful of modern Protestant authors who can truly be called seminal. Although the prejudice among academics is to read primary texts, there is also in my opinion a need for secondary texts that illuminate the thoughts of great theologians. Althought I do not believe Mangina wrote this book with the idea of it being an "introduction to Barth" in mind, it does serves as an unequalled summary of Barth and some of his more important ideas. Mangina has the rare gift of being able to translate complex ideas into clear, lucid, well written English. As a divinity student who has read upteen texts, both primary and secondary, this book gets my highest recommendation.
 
A Beautiful Introduction to Barth  Jan 29, 2005
There are good introductions to Karl Barth, such as H. Hartwell, T. F. Torrance, G. Bromiley. Mangina takes his place among them. This is a beautifully done book--and covers Barth's thought nicely. As an introduction to Barth's thought, this is perhaps the best for the beginning seminary student, although one will want to consult the others previously mentioned. Fans of Barth's work owe Mangina a hearty "thanks!"
