Jüngel and baptism

Kurt Anders Richardson’s book, Reading Karl Barth, includes a very substantial engagement with Eberhard Jüngel’s work on baptism. Richardson argues for the validity of Jüngel’s assertion that “whoever wishes to baptise infants should not proclaim his closeness to Barth’s doctrine of predestination.” I’ve discussed this in a review of the book over at Faith and Theology.

Thanks Ben.
Following your advice, I started the baptism fragment of the KD first, and so I was dissapointed to read Webster's opinion of the section while half-way through.
