Barth: Postmodern and Christian?

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.

Perhaps there is a way to speak Christianly within every epistemological/philosophical framework.

Is it possible to be a Christian Platonist? I certainly hope so – otherwise Augustine is “out.”

Can one be a Christian Aristotelian? If so, Thomas Aquinas certainly was one.

Can one be a Christian “Post-Modern” (for lack of a better term)? If so, then Barth shows us the way, if we wish to follow.
