    Could some of the Barthian scholars explain his view of double predestination to me?

    I know that he said that both predestination and reprobation are found in Christ and rejects the idea of election in the Council of Peace.

    Is that right?

    Can you also give me links to read on this as well as citations??

    Thanks DMcFadden! That's some good reading. (well, except the Barth stuff). Sigh, Jesus the electing God? Everytime I read Barth, I have to wonder how he got to be so well read. The Van til passage was well written, exposing what is wrong, and how his thought processes brought him to his conclusions. Thank you for the info.
