Digital Karl Barth library

Provides access to a full-text searchable database of Karl Barth's works in German and English including (as of this writing) "the entire corpus of Barth's Gesamtausgabe", Die kirchliche Dogmatik, the Church Dogmatics, and Other Writings. This is an ongoing project and more volumes can be expected to augment the current online collection over time. The great benefit of this electronic collection is its full text searchability, which facilitates a streamlined, "highly sophisticated" level analysis of the texts of Barth's work, unattainable in the print volumes. The volumes can be searched by tables of contents, by document characteristics, or by keyword through its search engine. Viewing the document files requires some adjusting. Once a particular HTML full-text file has been accessed, succeeding and preceding pages are navigated by means of barely discernable "Previous section" / "Next section" links at the top and bottom left and right margins of the page. This is a tremendous resource for students of Neo-Orthodoxy, Barth, or the history of Reformed thought in the 20th century. Alexander Street Press
