One of the services that Karl Barth has rendered to us is to ask incisive questions about the way we have been doing theology. He has a knack for spotting and inspecting the cultural baggage we so easily bring with us when we read the Scriptures. If we learn no other lesson from Barth, we will do well to pick up his habit of refining our theological method in the fire and light of God’s voice speaking in the voices of the prophets and apostles concerning His self-revelation in Jesus Christ. This book examines several faults with Western individualism. It offers a relational model of personhood as a more biblical alternative and shows that Barth works in terms of such a model, rejecting individualism. Thus his theology achieves a fuller and more biblical understanding of conversion than analyses that assume individualism.
