- Why Read Karl Barth? Because “God” is a Cheerful Word! - May 10, 2021
I was thinking today about Karl Barth—since it’s his birthday (May 10)—and about why I think his theology is worth reading. I remembered a great phrase from Eberhard Jüngel, who said Barth’s theology proclaims that “God” is a cheerful word. That captures so well why, for me, I have read and continue to read Karl Barth. He proclaims God’s unwavering YES to the human race. So I hope this brief reflection will encourage you to read more Barth—that he may remind you that the gospel is good news.
