I Need a Barth Expert

I recently wrote an essay trying to understand the relationship between Brevard Childs and Karl Barth. Unfortunately, I'm not a Barth expert, so I'm not too sure how sound my conclusions are. They seem to be saying essentially the same thing, with Childs' canonical approach being an attempt to implement Barth's programme exegetically. I hinted at this in a previous post here.

If anyone is interested in critically assessing this essay, I'd be grateful. Send an e-mail to philsumpterAThotmailDOTcom and I'll forward it on to you.

As an aside, Timothy has a great Childs quote here.

And for an interesting response to the recent Australian apology, go here.
