When Barth’s counter-response was published, he had already made the transition to the ministry in Safenwil. Perhaps one must have drunk as deeply as Barth at the wells of modernity in order to reject it as fiercely as he did. The process of Barth’s distancing himself from the understanding of theology which he had taken over from his teachers and which he had defended in such a spirited manner, started gradually and then came to an abrupt climax. At first he sought orientation from the Religious Socialists in Switzerland, Leonhard Ragaz and Heinrich Kutter, who had taken up the challenge of the social situation created by the industrial revolution, which Barth could experience in his own parish in Safenwil by ‘bringing together’ Christianity and empirical reality in a strategy, not of mediation, but of conscious conflict.

The c ha l l en ge o f ba r th’ s u nde rs ta nding of theol ogy Barth’s understanding of theology remains a challenge in today’s theological situation. It questions the tacit assumptions of ways of doing theology that, in some places, have quietly returned to doing theology as if Barth’s challenge had never happened. It also questions the tacit assumptions of doing theology by imitating Barth’s theology, because the challenge lies as much in the way in which Barth worked out his understanding of theology as at the ‘position’ at which he arrived.
