Brillant, lakonisch und bitterkomisch: Das Psychogramm unserer Zeit. Mann und Frau. Mutter und Tochter. Freunde und Freundinnen. In zwölf Stories erkundet Kristen Roupenian das Lebensgefühl von Menschen in einer schönen neuen Welt. Fragile Hierarchien und prekäre Lebenssituationen auf der einen, das Bedürfnis nach Sicherheit und Spaß auf der anderen Seite: Alles ist möglich, aber wer sind wir, wenn wir alles sein können? Mit so viel Einsicht in die Wünsche und Ängste des Einzelnen hat man noch nicht über das Zusammenleben in dieser neuen Zeit gelesen - einer Zeit, in der alles greifbar ist, und es doch immer schwerer wird, auch nur das Geringste davon zu erreichen. „Einzigartig – zum ersten Mal werden die Befindlichkeiten der Millennials beschrieben.“ Washington Post

Reading The Bible Missionally

Insights from a noteworthy convergence of top scholars in biblical studies and missiology Over the past half century, it has become clear that mission is a central theme in the Bible's narrative and, moreover, is central to the very identity of the church. This book significantly widens and deepens the emerging conversation on missional hermeneutics. Essays from top biblical and missiological scholars discuss reading the Scriptures missionally, using mission as a key interpretive lens. Five introductory chapters probe various elements of a missional hermeneutic, followed by sections on the Old and New Testaments that include chapters on two books from each to illustrate what a missional reading of them looks like. Essays in two concluding sections draw out the implications of a missional reading of Scripture for preaching and for theological education. CONTRIBUTORS Craig G. Bartholomew Richard Bauckham Carl J.

In this volume, highly esteemed scholar Kevin Vanhoozer introduces readers to a way of thinking about Christian theology that takes the work he began in the groundbreaking 2005 book, The Drama of Doctrine, to its next level. Vanhoozer argues that theology is not merely a set of cognitive beliefs, but is also something we do that involves speech and action alike. He uses a theatrical model to explain the ways in which doctrine shapes Christian understanding and forms disciples. The church, Vanhoozer posits, is the preeminent theater where the gospel is "performed," with doctrine directing this performance. Doctrines are not simply truths to be stored, shelved, and stacked, but indications and directions to be followed, practiced, and enacted. In "performing" doctrine, Christians are shaped into active disciples of Jesus Christ. He goes on to examine the state of the church in today's world and explores how disciples can do or perform doctrine. Written in an accessible and engaging style, Faith Speaking Understanding sets forth a compelling vision of what the church is and what it should be doing, and demonstrates the importance of Christian doctrine for this mission. Disciples who want to follow Christ in all situations need doctrinal direction as they walk onto the social stage in the great theater of the world. The Christian faith is about acknowledging, and participating in, the great thing God is doing in our world: making all things new in Christ through the Holy Spirit. Doctrine ministers understanding: of God, of the drama of redemption, of the church as a company of faithful players, and of individual actors, all of whom have important roles to play. In an age where things fall apart and centers fail to hold, doctrine centers us in Jesus Christ, in whom all things hold together.

Der Gott Der Lebendigen

English summary: Focusing on the history of religion, the authors explore the Old and New Testaments in order to ascertain which basic knowledge is imparted about God as "the One who loves us." The dialogue between Old and New Testament experts results in a biblical theology which traces the theological topoi in their historical development and at the same time puts them in the order of their factually based importance as well as their logical context. German description: "Spieckermann und Feldmeier legen eine Gotteslehre vor, deren Lekture durch ihre theologische Klarheit, ihre ausgesprochen schone Sprache und ihren kreativen Stil beeindruckt. Fur ein intensives Studium, ob zur Auffrischung bibeltheologischer Kenntnisse oder zu einem ersten Herantasten an den Themenkomplex biblischer Theologie, ist das Buch ebenso geeignet wie fur eine separate Rezeption der in sich verstandlichen einzelnen Kapitel." Martin Nitsche in Theologie der Gegenwart 2012, Heft 4, S. 317-318 "Darin liegen fur Feldmeier und Spieckermann Gottes Zuwendung, Zumutung und Zuspruch gleichermassen begrundet, [...] dass im Neuen Testament "verdichtet" wird, was das Alte Testament "vorgedacht" hat. Sie finden damit zu einer Theologie, die sich weder auf historische Religionsformen noch auf "christliche Werte" herunterbrechen lasst. Sie finden zu einer Theologie, die ihr aufklarerisch-kritisches Moment selbst enthalt." Dirk Pilz in Berliner Zeitung, 19.3.2012 "Das Buch ist ein exzellentes Werk - in konziser Darlegung und in guter Zusammenfassung. So ist der Band allen Theologinnen und Theologen in kirchlicher und schulischer Praxis sehr zu empfehlen." Karl-Friedrich Wiggermann in PV-aktuell Nr. 2, 2011, S. 17
