AN AFRICAN COMPARATIVE REVIEW OF LUTHER’S AND BARTH’S THEOLOGIES OF CREATION AND SALVATION: SOME CONVERGENCIES AND DIVERGENCIES
Keywords:Dialogue, Creation, Redemption, Apocatastasis, Fulfilment
This paper is a comparative exercise that outlines Martin Luther’s and Karl Barth’s doctrines of creation in the context of contemporary theology. It identifies Luther’s doctrine of creation as being built on the foundations of individuality, continuity, corporeality, and dialogue. It further identifies Barth’s doctrine of creation as one premised on the notion of a graced covenant. In the process of the comparative exercise, the paper also examines the notions Ubuntu and apocatastasis and how these two affect the appropriation of Luther’s and Barth’s doctrines of creation in an African context.
