If you’re interested in the early Barth this will be of interest. But do note, they mean the first edition, published in 1919 and never translated into English and not the vastly different second edition of 1922 which has been translated (though not stunningly) and which was panned by Barth’s colleagues as more Barth than Paul.

District Judge Michael Gibbens sentenced Raymond Soden to five years and 10 months in prison. That was eight years less than what was called for in Kansas sentencing guidelines.
