$190 - For $190 the 14 volume Church Dogmatics by Karl Barth could belong to you (as long as the Australian Dollar stays at $0.969 US Dollars). This is a bargain - the magnum opus of one of the most influential theologians of the twentieth century. Usually $995 US, this is a 90% discount. And it's Karl Barth. How many other theologians have appeared on a stamp, annoyed Hitler and on the cover of Time Magazine? And the word on the street is that they look hot.
So should I buy it? Well...maybe. I have this in the back of my mind. And I want to know how on earth they can sell it so cheaply? Is someone being poorly paid so that the publishers can afford to give such a massive discount? Or have the earth's resources been cheaply devoured to supply my cravings?
Who knew Church Dogmatics could inspire so many ethical questions in the mind of a Gen Y Australian?
