Brian McLaren on Barth

Dear Brian,
. . . What is your experience with Barth?

Answer: I have read quite a bit of Barth, but I am by no means a Barth expert. It’s interesting you ask about my experience with Barth, because once, many years ago, while reading a section early in volume 1 of Church Dogmatics, I remember having this intense, gripping, almost scary sense of the glory and transcendence of God. I put the book down and just sat in a state of awe and worship. It was an afternoon I’ll never forget.
