Admiration and Challenge

Karl Barth's Theological Relationship with John Calvin

Sung Wook Chung

Admiration & Challenge explores the character of Karl Barth’s theological relationship with John Calvin by analyzing Barth’s use of Calvin’s arguments in his theological construction, which is simultaneously «anti-modernist» and «modern.» The first part of this book is devoted to a theological and historical analysis of Barth’s engagement with Calvin, while the second part includes a thematic analysis of Barth’s use of Calvin in two major doctrines – the doctrine of the knowledge of God and the theme of law and gospel.
