Barthian bits and pieces 01

Some recurrent themes in CD I/1 (they are inter-related, actually):

1. God is God and human is human. It might seem obvious, but more often than not the distinction is collapsed and/or the order is overturned.

2. God reveals himself as Lord.

3. God is free.

Hence, read the Bible — and listen, trust, and obey! (No kidding.)
