The Freedom of God for Us: Karl Barth's Doctrine of Divine Aseity by Brian D. Asbill

This volume provides an analysis of divine aseity in Karl Barth's thought and appreciates the vital role that this doctrine can play in contemporary theology. Brian D. Asbill begins by setting the general theological context, first through a broad sketch of the development of Barth's understanding of the relationship between the life of God pro nobis (pronobeity) and a se (aseity), and secondly through the examination of the basic theological convictions that guide his approach to the divine being in Church Dogmatics II/1.

Particular attention is given to how these themes arise from revelation and relate to one another.
