The 2015 Annual Karl Barth Conference, currently underway at Princeton Theological Seminary, has kicked off with a stirring opening lecture by Jürgen Moltmann on the topic ‘Predestination: Karl Barth’s Doctrine of the Election of Grace’. Professor Moltmann reminded us again why Barth was right when he wrote, in CD §32, that ‘the doctrine of election is the sum of the Gospel because of all the words that can be said or heard it is the best: that God elects humanity; that God is for humanity too the One who loves in freedom’.
For those who missed the lecture, here it is:
The main sessions are being live streamed here, and the Q&A time for this session can be watched here – great news for those of us unable to make it to Princeton for this wonderful event.
Thank you for sharing this valuable resource form Moltmann.
This is awesome. Thanks, Jason!
You’re welcome, Jason.
Hello Jason, Thank you for posting this, it is excellent. Do you know if there is a transcript available of this talk, as some of the Latin
and German is difficult to grasp? Kind regards, Richard.
Hi Richard. I’m unaware of any available transcript.
Hi, Jason, thanks for the reply. I Have just found that the transcript is available as a chapter in Daniel Migliore’s, Reading the Gospels With Barth. (2017:Eerdmans).
