BRUNNER, Emil


BRUNNER, Emil
(1889-1966)
   Swiss theologian and of the most influential scholars of the interwar years. He parted company with Karl BARTH over his acceptance of NATURAL THEOLOGY in the 1930s. His early thought was influenced by CHRISTIAN SOCIALISM. His book The Mediator (1927) was the first presentation of the doctrine of CHRIST in terms of DIALECTICAL THEOLOGY. Brunner saw the Gospel as an exposition of the FIRST COMMANDMENT and was deeply influenced by both KIERKEGAARD'S dialectic and Martin BUBER'S "I-THOU" CONCEPT. He regarded SCRIPTURE as somehow normative, though not above criticism and REVELATION as always indirect. Unlike BARTH, he believed in an already existing point of contact between the Gospel and non-Christian people.
