Yes it should indeed...a giant among men!
It pretty much would have been a rout if he were in the actual competition.
I don't think we would have 'discovered' so many other thinkers in his shadow.The angels laugh at old Karl. They laugh at him because he tries to grasp the truth about God in a book of Dogmatics. They laugh at the fact that volume follows volume and each is thicker than the previous one. As they laugh, they say to one another, 'Look! Here he comes now with his little pushcart full of volumes of the Dogmatics!' - and they laugh about the men who write so much about Karl Barth instead of writing about the things he is trying to write asbout. Truly, the angels laugh.- Quoted in G. Casalis, Portrait of Karl Barth (New York: Doubleday, 1963), 3.
Wow, Moltmann didn't do so bad considering the giant that is Barth. Very cool.
No Barth, no Moltmann.
I didn't find out about this until I read the Aug 8 edition of Christian Century. What a hoot!What a great idea! Very scientific! The rigorous methodology that yields assured results. ;-)I'm glad I didn't run across this during the summer for it would have been a very fun distraction that would have slowed much work. Great idea Patrik! Great fun!
