During the Q & A time, after his lecture, a student asked the famed Swiss Reformed theologian Karl Barth if he could summarize his whole life’s work in theology, in a sentence. The famed theologian said,
“Yes, I can. In the words of a song I learned at my mother’s knee: ‘Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so.”
I’ve always been intrigued by this story ever since I heard it. I thought I’d share it here. Be blessed with this childlike answer of such a towering theological giant.
