Church Dogmatics II/1

Summary: God, who exists solely in his self-revealing act, makes himself known as the one who loves in freedom.

Quote: “We are now assuming that we have here [in the incarnation of Jesus Christ] the centre and goal of all God’s works, and therefore the hidden beginning of them all. We are also assuming that the prominent place occupied by this divine work has something corresponding to it in the essence of God, that the Son forms the centre of the Trinity, and that the essence of the divine being has, so to speak, its locus ... in His work, in the name and person of Jesus Christ” (p. 661).

Notable section: §31,3—Barth’s beautiful account of God’s glory and beauty.
