I was reading the introduction to a selection from The Divine Imperative by Emil Brunner. At one point the writer of the introduction talks about the rivalry between Emil Brunner and Karl Barth. Apparently students and followers of Brunner were fond of giving the following sarcastic summary of Karl Barth’s theology:
“God is everything; I am nothing; You are a fool!”
I am currently going through an I-love-Karl-Barth stage, but still – that is pretty funny.
