Example text

Barth therefore accepts the notion of an ‘analogy of faith’ but rejects ‘analogy of being’. ‘This is not similarity of being, an analogia entis. , III: 2, sect. 45, 220). This does not, however, exclude communicative interaction. For in an analogy of relation a human being may address God as ‘Thou’, rather than subsuming God within an analogy of being by over-ready uses of ‘he’, ‘she’, or ‘it’. , 243–59). Even among admirers or followers of Barth, some express reservations about whether his insistence on the transcendent otherness of God has perhaps introduced a confusion of categories into the issue of language in religion.

He uses the example of a shipowner who sends people to sea in a ship concerning the seaworthiness of which he has well-founded doubts. Supposedly he persuades himself to ‘believe’ that a kindly Providence will guard this against mishap. It is ‘wrong to believe on insufficient evidence’. In principle Clifford rightly underlines, with Locke, the responsibility and public effects of belief. However, his criteria go beyond Locke’s ‘reasonableness’ to a virtually positivist demand for unambiguous empirical evidence (see empiricism; positivism).

This is ‘objectivity’ in Barth’s sense. barth’s reformulation of the traditional view of analogy Barth’s Church Dogmatics covers a huge range of topics: revelation and the Word of God; the doctrine of God, the Trinity, and Christology; creation and humankind (four large volumes in the English translation), yet more on reconciliation and redemption. Yet a constant theme remains ‘the Godhead of God . . God is God’ (Church Dogmatics, IV: 2, sect. 64, 101). Such a God is self-giving. Thus we see glimpses of his self-giving Fatherhood in the derivative concept of human fatherliness.
