Canon and Criterion in Christian Theology

Karl Barth's vision of a Neoorthodoxy that would recover the insights of the Protestant Reformation looked to the material content of scripture to fend off the encroachments of bad epistemology as represented by natural theology. His bold and exclusivist vision of special revelation was intimately tied to a retrieval of the doctrine of the Trinity. Contrary to his avowals, this enterprise continued the Cartesian revolution at the root of the Enlightenment. Its resources for recovering the full faith of the Church were severely limited; it is more by accident than by deep principle that it upheld the doctrine of the Trinity.

Keywords:   Cartesian revolution, natural theology, Neoorthodoxy, Protestant Reformation, Trinity
