It is no secret that Karl Barth’s theological star has waned in recent decades. But even currently invisible stars may, in principle, still have much light to shed on ancient, intractable problems. Science can no doubt be a useful dialogue partner for some areas of theology, but when it comes to the crunch of theodicy, Barth’s intuitions about the meaning of ‘creation’ may perhaps still be more realistic than any amount of speculation about the ‘big bang’.
