Barth on God's freedom to speak

“God may speak to us through Russian Communism, a flute concerto, a blossoming shurb, or a dead dog”
(CD I/1: 55)

Or, in a different context, as Gerald Coates once said: "If God can speak through Balaam's ass he can speak through Margaret Thatcher."

Barth is just as feisty as Luther!

Coates is not bad either.

Funnily enough I also find echoes of Luther in Barth. They were both what I call "Punk Rock Theologians"
