Abstract and Keywords

In surveying Barth’s doctrine of providence in Church Dogmatics III/3, the chapter notes the systematic location and epistemological grounding of this doctrine before exploring its main themes. Attention is devoted to Barth’s exposition of the threefold form of providence in divine preservation, accompaniment, and rule, particularly with respect to his reception of Reformed Orthodoxy. The practical significance of faith in providence and of the signs of providence in history are also considered. In conclusion, some questions raised by critics of Barth are registered.

Keywords: concursus, divine government, preservation, providence, Reformed Orthodoxy
