Description

This study demonstrates that election constitutes the structural and hermeneutical key to the Church Dogmatics. The method, themes and construction in Barth's doctrine of election are shown to be determining factors in the C.D. The study begins with an inquiry into Barth's dogmatic methodology and the location of the doctrine within the doctrine of God. This is followed by an analysis of election itself with attention to the correlation of election, revelation and christology; the polemical reconstruction of the traditional elements of the doctrine; and the accusation of universalism. Includes an examination of the biblical exegesis in the doctrine of election. Contents: Part 1: The Dogmatic Context-The Location of the Doctrine; Part 2: The Noetic Structure of Election-The Epistemology of Election, The Extension of Election, The Dogmatic Implications of Election; Part 3: The Biblical Hermeneutics of Election-The Core of the ction Hermeneutic, The Perimeter Election Hermeneutic; Part 4: The Pervasiveness of Election-The Significance of Election for C.D. III-IV.
