Church Dogmatics III/1

Summary: Creation is the external and covenant the internal side of God’s gracious “Yes” to his creature in Jesus Christ.

Quote: “The fact that the covenant is the goal of creation is not something which is added later to the reality of the creature.... It already characterises creation itself and as such, and therefore the being and existence of the creature” (p. 231).

Notable section: §42—Barth’s account of the creator’s gracious “Yes” to his creature; through this “Yes,” creation is benefit, actualisation and justification.
