Admiration and Challenge explores the character of Karl Barth's theological relationship with John Calvin by analyzing Barth's use of Calvin s arguments in his theological construction, which is simultaneously “anti-modernist” and “modern.” The first part of this book is devoted to a theological and historical analysis of Barth's engagement with Calvin, while the second part includes a thematic analysis of Barth's use of Calvin in two major doctrines -- the doctrine of the knowledge of God and the theme of law and gospel.
