Keith Ward has taught philosophy and theology in British universities for the earlier 40 years, and he's now weighting in on a massive highbrow conflict: whther human individuals are in simple terms fabric - not anything yet topic - or whther there's one other, deeply worthy a part of us, which transcends bodies in nature and ethical worthy.
As theologians throughout confessional divides try and say anything major approximately human dignity in our modern society, there's clean curiosity within the historic Christian doctrine that the person is created within the 'imago Dei'.

However this does not mean that we have to accept the whole Barthian system. We should legitimately ask if the Barthian system, although giving a sense of finality, can be the last word on God’s dealings with humanity. We are drawn to ask ourselves how Barth preserves the freedom and dignity of the human being in such a system which, we might argue, leaves humanity so passive. Whilst Barth can help us to affirm how humanity is made new in Christ, it is also true that for him the human being, whilst saved, is still, fundamentally, fallen, apart from God and unable to do anything to alter that.
In response to this accusation it is interesting to turn to the teaching of the Second Vatican Council. The teaching of Vatican II is totally in line with that of the Council of Trent as it recognises the deficiencies in the Reformation doctrines.

Barth, von Balthasar and Moltmann This first exploration of the writings of Karl Barth, Hans Urs von Balthasar and Jürgen Moltmann intends to do the following. For each in turn I will introduce their life and times and their theological system in general. I will then briefly outline their perspective on the doctrine of “imago Dei ”. My aim is to show how they fit into the history of the doctrine I have been outlining and discussing up to this point. In particular I hope to show how they interpret the major themes and tensions in the history of the doctrine and point a way forward for its development now.
