Many people interpret Updike's work within the context of Christian existentialism, but Barth provided Updike with far more than context. His dialectical thinking served as the starting point for Updike's own dialectical vision, a vision that was in fact a complex matrix of ethical precepts, theological beliefs, and aesthetic principles that governed nearly all of his professional writing.
