Karl Barth on the God of the Gospel

The God of the Gospel is the God who mercifully dedicates and delivers himself to the life of all men–including their theologies.  Nevertheless, he transcends not only the undertakings of all other men but also the enterprise of evangelical theologians.  He is the God who again and again discloses himself anew and must be discovered anew, the God over whom theology neither has nor receives sovereignty.”  (Evangelical Theology: An Introduction, p. 6)
