The New Hermeneutic of such men as Ernst F uchs and Gerhard Ebeling has done something similar in recent decades to what Barth 'did in the early twenties. These men seek to be both more modern and more Reformational than Barth was in his day. Theologians of various schools are taking their positions in relation to this New Hermeneutic as their forbearers did in relation to Barth.
The present volume is doing the same. In earlier publications the present writer pointed out that the synthesis between a theology based on that of the Ref'ormcrs and a theology based on the philosophy of Kant is an intellectual and spiritual monstrosity. In it Kant, not Calvin is the real victor. The result is the destruction of an intelligible basis for human predication. What is needed is a really Reformational philosophy and theology. Only if we have this can the depth of the contrast between the self-attesting Christ of the Scripture and the Christ-Event of neo-orthodoxy be seen for what it is. --Cornelius Van Til
