Barth's Dogmatics, searchable and for free, online!

Jim West, via Stephen Cook, links to an amazing online resource: Karl Barth's entire Church Dogmatics, in English, searchable and for free on the Internet!

Is there anything else that can brighten up your day more than that?
OK, something else brightened up my day today. On this post, John Hobbins said this:
The most vital form of biblical criticism has always been Sachkritik, that is, straightforward engagement, disagreement not excluded, with the substance of a biblical text.
The word Sachkritik and its emphasis on substance has become so central to me over the past couple of years, yet, apart from Childs, I've not come accross anyone who uses it. So thank you John: you also made may day!

The link takes me to a password protected website. You mentioned that it is free. Is that only for 30-days?

I am in the same boat as Anonymous. It asks me to login.

If this isn't real, I'll be sad.
Phil, don't play games with my heart.

I'm afraid they've just introduced password access. That has just, well, not ruined my day but certainly put a major damper on it :(
