Barth in a nutshell

My day job is taking up so much of my time and mental energy that I seem to be able to manage only about one blog post every two weeks.

That is probably a good thing.

Anyway, here is a summary of Karl Barth's entire theological enterprise in one sentence, taken from Church Dogmatics II.1:
The Christian doctrine of God has to face and answer questions put to it by the God who confronts man and not by the man who confronts God.
Put that in your pipe and smoke it.
