This analysis of agape and eros in the Church Dogmatics argues that although there are real difficulties with Barth’s development of these concepts in the Dogmatics, a careful reading of the material suggests that these difficulties are not so serious as may first appear and may be overcome. This interpretative work also facilitates a dialogue between Barth and two contemporary ethicists working on the concept of Christian love, a dialogue in which Barth proves to be a worthy and rewarding partner.
