Abstract

This essay is a response to the article by Michael O'Neill, 'Karl Barth's Doctrine of Election', Evangelical Quarterly 76:4 (October 2004): 311-26. I show, contrary to O'Neill's essay, that Karl Barth's doctrine of election in Church Dogmatics II/2 is either incoherent or universalistic. However,if and attempt is made to 'see past' the letter of what Barth says to the spirit of his account, a coherent and non-universalistic doctrine of election can be set forth. In the latter section of the essay just such an account is given.
