Introduction

This introduction presents an overview of key concepts covered in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book attempts to address the resurrection of Jesus Christ deficiency by providing a sustained analysis of Karl Barth's doctrine of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It also draws out both the essential and consistent features of Barth's understanding of the resurrection and his development of these in the course of his publishing career. The book provides an analytical survey of much of the important commentary on Barth's doctrine of the resurrection to date. It focuses on Barth's 1924 work, The Resurrection of the Dead, in an effort to isolate both the key concepts of his early understanding and the context in which they are developed. The book consists of an analysis of the context of Barth's explicit discussion of the resurrection of Jesus Christ in the fourth volume of the Church Dogmatics.
