I recently found this post by a student of one of Barth’s foremost interpreters. In it he gives students tips for how to read Karl Barth.
I don’t know if anyone who reads this has read Barth before, but man he is tough. I often get lost in a maze of what is to me archaic language and millions of pronouns per paragraph.
I found his tips to be very helpful. I hope that they help anyone who is a “Barthian.” I want to start posting about Barth’s material, but i’m a little gunshy due to the complexity and often “counter-intuitive” nature of his thought. He is easy to misrepresent! I guess i’ll just have to jump in.
Thanks to Chris for sharing these insights.
