Karl Barth Quote

What expressions we used – in part taken over and in part newly invented! — above all, the famous 'wholly other' breaking in upon us 'perpendicularly from above,' the not less famous 'infinite qualitative distinction' between God and man, the vacuum, the mathematical point, and the tangent in which alone they must meet.


The Humanity of God (1960), p. 42.
