 Barth, Karl. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
Barth’s primary object was to lead theology back to the principles of the Reformation (called neo-orthodoxy).
For Barth, modern theology with its assent to science, immanent philosophy, and general culture and with its stress on feeling, was marked by indifference to the word of God and to the revelation of God in Jesus, which he thought should be the central concern of theology.
In the confrontation between humanity and God, which was Barth’s fundamental concern, the word of God and God’s revelation in Jesus are the only means God has for Self-revelation; Barth argued that people must listen in an attitude of awe, trust, and obedience.

 The Karl Barth Centennial: An Appreciative Critique
Barth had many friends, but he also made many enemies (not a few of whom were former friends) The number of enemies can be attributed in part to the fact that he was probably more successful in overcoming sloth than pride.
Barth would never mitigate his affirmation of the utter majesty of God, but he came to see that there is a greater lordship than that of an imperious potentate -- i.e., the sovereignty of a God who can even risk suffering at the hands of his creatures.
Barth reasserted "orthodoxy," but with the proviso that God’s capacity to suffer was the proof of his true lordship.

Barth's 'Church Dogmatics' represents a major achievement in the history of theology, twentieth century or otherwise; this text, 'Dogmatics in Outline', can serve as a good introduction, a brief overview, or a quick reminder of the greater work in 'Church Dogmatics'.
Barth warns against using this text in a Cliff-Notes fashion for the larger work; however, modern reality being what it is, many students and readers will never find the time to explore the larger work, so this is a welcome text.
One of Barth's concerns throughout his career, and certainly in the aftermath of world war, is that moderns have lost the ability to speak in theological and faithful terms.

Karl Barth vs. Emil Brunner: The Formation and Dissolution of a Theological Alliance, 1916-1936 by John W. Hart (Issues in Systematic Theology, Vol.
Barth is ruthlessly and consistently concerned with doing theology which profoundly respects the ontological and noetic dis­tance between the self-revealing God and his sinful and elected Church-a theology which is radically "dialectical".
Barth believes that God blesses our human capacities of understanding and therefore dialectic becomes useful not just as a crier against human arrogance, but as an epistemological tool to coordinate and hold in mutual reciprocity what may appear to us to be contradictory in God's nature.
