Hearing and Speaking the Word of God

If theology is to speak adequately of the gospel of Jesus Christ, it must be thoroughly committed to hearing “the powerful witness of the ‘tremendous’ Word that always speaks against us so that we can learn to stop speaking against it.” (A Half Century of Theology, p. 74).
This quotation is taken from Berkouwer’s account of Karl Barth’s reaction to the theological method of Rudolf Bultmann.
