Out of the Abundance of the Heart

“What is the meaning of this recollection of past revelation? Recollection of God’s enacted revelation might mean the actualization of a revelation of God originally immanent in the existence of every man, i.e., of man’s own original awareness of God. In this case recollection of God’s enacted revelation would be identical with the discovery and fresh appropriation of a long hidden, forgotten and unused part, and indeed the most central and significant part, of the timeless essential constitution of man himself, namely, his relation to the eternal or absolute.”

-Karl Barth CD I/I page. 99
