Barth Bite for Friday January 1, 2016

Followers of Barth Bite are aware that some days I do not share any quotes from Karl Barth even though I read ten pages of his Church Dogmatics every day. However today, on the first day of the new year, I found two short statements worth sharing.
“What we read in Gen. 1 and 2 are genuine histories of creation.”
“A man without imagination is more of an invalid than one who lacks a leg.”
– Karl Barth, Church Dogmatics, Volume III.1, pages 89 and 91
