Example text

Apart from his being schooled in this tradition, his writings are systematically laid out following the conventional pattern of doctrinal writing in the C. D. and his earlier Gottingen Dogmatics. For example, the plan of the C. D. shows how he works systematically through the doctrines of God, Creation and Reconciliation. Jenson 76 draws attention to the confusion in understanding Barth's standing in theology when he notes that even at the height of his fame in the 1950s, there were those from the evangelical wing of Christian churches who had the impression that his thought was a conservative reaction to "modernism".

139 Ibid. 51 11. The Particular Focus of Barth's Doctrine of Salvation The particular focus of my study is Barth's doctrine of salvation. This doctrine has met with controversy because Barth proposed a theology of salvation which insists that God acted in human history in His own time. The implication here is that eternity enters human time in its own container. This notion is preposterous to the tradition of thought that has come down from Kant, Hegel and the philosophers and theologians influenced by their thought.

Barth fully accepts Schleiermacher's concept of religion, as Jenson says, in the sense that both attempt to unify and make overall sense of human life. The difference between Schleiermacher and Barth is that Barth reversed Schleiermacher's system: instead of interpreting Christianity by the general characteristics and functions of religion, he interprets religion by Christianity's differentiating specificity. hid. 72 WririnJ; and Difference, op. , p. 251. 396. , op. 29. 35 There can be no doubt, therefore, that Barth and Derrida are trying to say a similar thing.
