Abstract :
Karl Barth is discussed in various perspectives and in different contexts. It is a significant contribution to retrieve Barth’s irregular insights into dynamism of God’s Word in action. This irregular dimension, in contrast to Neo-Orthodox Barthianism or beyond critical, realistic, dialectical methodology, is an indispensable part in shaping of Barth’s theology which is of analogical, provocative, and universal character. This article proposes an irregular, hermeneutical, and socio-critical side of Barth’s theology in view of interreligious studies and cross-cultural readings in East Asia (China, Japan, and South-Korea).
