wednesdayswithbarthfrontI purchased the set of Barth’s Dogmatics with the hope of reading through them and doing a weekly post about what I find. Though I love the paper copy of any book, when it comes to reading Barth I need all the help I can get. I absolutely love Logos Bible Software. I use it like a carpenter uses a hammer. As a pastor, it is a huge blessing how  their software helps a guy like me through some pretty technical commentaries, etc. So I’m excited to read through Barth with Logos!

Starting Monday, I am going to be working through Karl Barth’s Church Dogmatics with Logos. Every Wednesday I will share with our readers my journey through Barth. Here are three reasons why I would recommend reading Barth through the lens of Logos. This is going to be fun!

Update: This blows my mind. On the very same day I started this series a guy named John Walker (I do not know him & he does not know me) started a series called Wednesdays with Barth as well! What are the odds of that? He has a blog called FREEDOM IN ORTHODOXY. You should check it out as well.

1. Referencing: As I write my weekly Barth post for ThinkTheology I need to be able to reference all that Barth says quickly.


2. Interaction: I can change the font size, bible versions, as well as read the highlights of other readers. The Greek, Latin and French citations are all translated into English. Let me say that again… (cough, cough). The Greek, Latin and French citations are all translated into English!

3. Portability: I can place anything I want from my logos library on my Kindle or access it via my Smart Phone.
