Abstract

Last paragraph: "Readers of Karl Barth will be aware of how much this essay owes to him and not least to the last volume of his Church Dogmatics, 4.3. It is highly appropriate that Diakonia should be the theme of this tribute to him, for rarely has any theologian so consistently directed his theological work to stimulate and prompt the diakonia of the divine mercy as the charge which Christ has laid upon the Church as a whole."
