"I used to be and i'm a standard theologian, who doesn't have the observe of God at his disposal, yet, at top, a 'Doctrine of the notice of God,'" writes Karl Barth within the preface of Die christliche Dogmatik im Emtwurf
. effectively appreciating the advanced occupation of Barth's characterization of what Scripture is theologically can open up positive traces of inquiry relating to his self-description as a theologian and reader of the Bible. by means of mining Barth's released and posthumous theological and exegetical writings and sermons, either famous fabrics and understudied writings reminiscent of the numerous "Das Schriftprinzip der reformierten Kirche" lecture, Alfred H. Yuen bargains a special studying of Barth's ideas at the individual and paintings of the biblical writers by means of mapping his theological occupation as a college pupil, a pastor, a author, a tender professor, and, peculiarly, a "child of God" (CD I/1, 464-65).
"Arrested by means of the doctrinal cogency and rhetorical energy of Barth's past writing, de scriptura sacra, Yuen holds it up for sustained interrogation. the result's an essay of substantial curiosity that increases major questions about the pneumatological dimensions of Barth's theology of Scripture and scriptural reading."

"This is a welcome try to make clear a key element of Barth's doctrine of Scripture. Yuen surveys a couple of Barth's writings and sermons that others overlook, and in so doing discovers the significance for Barth of the Spirit's vivifying paintings in biblical authors and readers alike. This research presents extra assist in correcting the tendency to view the Bible and its interpretation except the task of the triune God, in whom the Bible lives, and strikes, and has its being."
