Religion and Creation

Oxford University Press

Twentieth-century theologians have attempted to reconceive the classical tradition of the Christian concept of God and interpret biblical sources in a different light. This chapter highlights the work of Karl Barth—considered by many to be the most outstanding 20th-century Christian theologian—as representative of attempts to provide a more dynamic and relational doctrine of God. The object is to bring out the distinctiveness of the idea of God as Trinity which stems from the New Testament, and at the same time drawing attention to some striking agreements between major modern theologians working across religious spectrum.

Keywords:   New Testament, theologian, Karl Barth, Trinity, Christianity, classical tradition
