Abstract

This article outlines the Christocentric anthropology of the Swiss theologian Karl Barth. It then proceeds to explicate Barth’s ethics and his stand on how to conduct relationships between women and men. His main points of loyalty, relatedness and order are explained, as well as his special views on marriage. From there the article goes forth to evaluate which points are relevant and useful today, and which are to be dismissed. It also gives an outlook on where Barth’s theological groundwork could also be taken, while still taking Barth’s main decisions seriously.
