In modern theology the election of Christ is often associated with the work of Karl Barth. In this paper, I offer an alternative account of Christ's election in dialogue with the Post-Reformation Reformed tradition. It turns out that, contrary to popular belief, there is no single 'Reformed' doctrine of election; a range of views has been tolerated in the tradition. I set out one particular construal of the election of Christ that stays within the confessional parameters of Reformed theology, while arguing, contrary to some Reformed divines, that Christ is the cause and foundation of election.
