Barth's theology of relations (the "analogia relationis") provides the key to the interconnection between Christian theology and ethics. This comprehensive study shows how Barth saw the nature of covenantal relationship revealed and actualized in Jesus Christ to be grounded in the trinitarian relations of Father, Son, and Spirit. The relational nature of humanity and of the command of God to humanity are, in turn, founded upon this christological and trinitarian basis. The charge that Barth's biblical and theological approach is ethically barren is refuted in two ways. First, Dr. Deddo shows how incisively Barth's trinitarian theology of relations informs his special ethics of the parent-child relationship. Then, the fruitfulness of Barth's approach for enriching and critiquing both Christian and nonreligious approaches to family relations is demonstrated by way of comparison with those formulated by Ray Anderson and Dennis Gurnsey, James Dobson, Salvador Minuchen, and Rudolph Dreikhurs. Finally, the value of Barth's theology of relations is shown through some preliminary investigations into nine issues facing the modern family such as procreation, adoption, and child-rearing.
