The objective of this thesis is to explore the doctrine of faith in John Calvin and Karl Barth as it has been received and interpreted in Korean Reformed theology. Evangelicals today are giving increased attention to the theology of Karl Barth, and are beginning to appreciate his monumental work as a viable alternative to conservatism on the right and liberalism on the left. But some evangelicals have lingering reservations as to whether Barth’s theology is adequately scriptural and evangelical. In the context of mixed evangelical responses to Barth, this thesis aims to supply a balanced appraisal of the way both Calvin and Barth have shaped theological reflection on faith. How Korean Reformed theologians employ the work of Calvin and Barth is important to understanding some of the wider theological debates and tensions in the Korean church.
