Christian Theologies of Salvation

This chapter investigates Karl Barth’s understanding of salvation. For Barth, Christ is both the electing God and the elected man, where the active and passive election of the Son provides the basis for the election of individual men and women. Salvation is primarily the gift of the God of salvation who has chosen to be God in a particular way: in Christ.
