After many months, I've decided to close down the poll and start anew. We had a good spread on this one. Not surprisingly, the doctrine of election was the most popular (36%), followed by the doctrine of reconciliation (22%), the doctrine of revelation (18%), the doctrine of the Trinity (16%), and the doctrine of Scripture (9%). Thanks for voting, and for the comments listed below:

|KB's doctrine of eternal election in Jesus Christ helped me get beyond the "insiders/outsiders" dichotomy and to perceive the depths of God's openness to us. - SJ||04/27/06 3:05:29 PM MST |
Now we turn to the contemporary Barth interpreters. Who's your favorite?
