“As Barth”: Entry #4

The fourth entry in the “As Barth” contest comes from Kerry Walters, who ran the now-retired blog, Subversive Christianity.

3 Haiku on Barth
Karl, Christ’s question mark,
kerygmatic herald
slayer of hubris.

Thirteen well-fed tomes
and more, all to persuade us
that God won't be tamed.

Mighty ambition.
But why not alpine silence?
We need fewer words.


The contest will end on July 4, at which point we will have a poll to decide who is the winner. If you wish to enter the contest, email me here. See the original post for more information. If you have a blog, please pass along the information about the contest!

I love how wildly different each entry is so far. The contest is going way beyond what David intended, but I think it's great! I hope they keep coming.

Yeah, I agree -- the variety of forms here is great. And it's good to know (at last) that this "Subversive Christianity" chap has a name.

3 out of 5 stars.

I still haven't seen anything that I'm crazy about...
