Karl Barth: Neo Orthodoxy

Few theologians have exerted a greater influence on the theological scene of the 20th century than the towering figure of Karl Barth. Even so, his view on biblical revelation has often been targeted for criticism from both liberal and evangelical scholars. It would nonetheless be naïve to suppose that neither camp could benefit from the correctives he offered. According to Hunsinger, Barth has “achieved the dubious distinction of being habitually honored but not much read”.

The purpose of this assignment is to provide an overview of Barth’s position and an evaluation of his prodigious contributions on the doctrine of revelation.
