EDITION VOL 102 Associated Press and United Press Internationa Full Lease Wires MASON CITY IOWA TUESDAY MAY 15 1962 UOc a Paper Consslls of Two One No 12 Dr Barth looks at theology Hes greatest of century By LOUIS CASSELS United Press International Dr Karl Earth of Basel Switz erland is a short stooped man of 76 He peers at the world through thick eye glasses anc usually wears a small quizzical smile He has been a dominant figure in Protestant theology for the past 40 years and scholars today refei to him matteroffactly as the greatest theologian of this century and one of the greatest of all time Dr Barth has been in the United States for the last month It is his first visit to this country In his talks Dr Earth has sought to summarize and clarif the main themes of the evangel ical theology which has ex pounded in more than 200 books Some laymen who have heart him speak have come awaj Whats so new abou that The question would delight Di Barth His purpose has never bee to offer novel modern interpreta tions of Christianity What he has sought to do and is great mea sure has succeeded in doing is to rescue theology from the by ways of 19th century liberalism Where liberalism tended to focus on human experience and to reason up w a r d from man nature and history to ward a concept of God Dr Barth took ex actly the op p o s i t e ap proach He be gan where prophets of an BARTH cieht Isreal began with the Su preme Fact of a Creating and sustaining God who is wholly other than man who entirely transcends mans finite cosmos of time and space and who can never be apprehended or under stood by his human creatures ex cept as he chooses to reveal him self to them It is both presumptuous and futile Dr Barth said for men to speculate about what God ought HE GOT IN THE LAST is the damaged home of John C Mc Donald Lansing Mich after he cli maxed a daylong argument with his wife by driving his car through the picture window He broke some other Photofax windows and set a fire in the attached garage also Damage was estimated at and McDonald was jailed on a reckless driving charge His wife missed the whole thing she wasnt home And hes happy Hell lose his job iFROM

such a step when he was a legislator It will result in increased econ omy and efficiency for the state N he should reveal himself Man can only listen for Gods own keeps Word or selfexpression This word requires no external val idation it authenticates itself be cause the God who speaks it is also present in human hearts en abling men to repond in faith and love to truths which they could never reach with the short arm of logic Much confusion about Dr Earths theology might be avoided by nothing that he uses the term word of God in the same sense that it is used inthe prologue to the Fourth Gospel namely to connote the selfrevealing activiti of God in history Dr Barth believes that this word of God is faithfully re corded in the Bible and his vigorous insistence on this point has given a mighty impetus to the modern revival of Biblical theology But he is not a funda mentalist and he has never sub scribed to the fundamentalist view that the Biblentself is the literal and infallible word of God To Dr Barth the Bibles su preme importance stems from its testimony to Jesus Christ the word made flesh Dr Earths theology is totally Christcentered In a sense all of his books are commentaries on the basic fact that the transcend ent unknowable God has condes cended to men by taking up humanity in Christ thus bridg ing the gulf between creator and creature which could never have been crossed from the other side The methods of historical sci ence he says cannot go beyond the testimony of the witnesses which is recorded in the New Testament It was granted to them says Dr Barth to hear the word o God in its glory as a pledge promise warning and consolation affecting all men And they were sent into the world with a com mission to attest Jesus as Ihi word of God to all men Men are free to accept thei testimony or toreject it say Dr Barth But it is sheer ar rogance for any modern theologia to treat the biblical witnesses a though he were better infonne about the word of God than the were I heartily approve of the ac The remuneration of the office lot out of proportion to its duties Winters job grew out of a situation found in no other state Most voters in
