Barth: Influenced, but not yet Convinced

This is an excerpt from my journal, which I kept while studying for a class on Karl Barth. It does not represent my finished thoughts on Barth. Please read my later posts on Barthianism, and especially my paper “The Gospel According to Barth” for my finished thoughts on the topic. If you have an objection or answer to my thoughts here, I would be hugely grateful for your input!

It would be disingenuous to say that I am untouched by Barth. Directly and indirectly, I have basked in the glow of his raging intellect. I am tanned from his radiation. Whether or not I have become or will become similarly irradiated, however, is the question under consideration. At any rate, might options are radical detox, or radical emergent: simple avoidance is no longer an option, if it ever was.
