Karl Barth’s theology entered a new phase when he adopted the anhypostatic-enhypostatic model of Christology. However, his basic orientation was towards the revelation-event which occurs in the here and now basis of God’s Self-revelation in Christ. Thus, though the ground of his theology was now Christological, his theology was largely pneumatocentric. This is most evident in his doctrine of election, which was centred in the concrete situation of the person who is addressed by revelation in the here and now.
