The author provides theological

details to such questions and helps us

fi nd new approaches to Christianity.

Anspruch der theologischen Ethik

The great discoveries and inventions

of this world seem to be linked

to science and engineers. However,

nuclear fi ssion, ecological crises

Kasper, Walter

The doctrine of tradition

Die Lehre von der Tradition

The relationship between the

scriptures and tradition is central

to the understanding of Christian

faith. The concept of tradition

has become somewhat nebulous

over the years and is in need of

clarifi cation. Tradition is not

something static, but something

alive; it is the underlying principle

of the church, buried deep in the

heart of the church and propagated

by the church.

Zink, Jörg

Resurrection

Auferstehung

The resurrection is the centre

of Christian faith. Since the

Enlightenment, however,

overcoming death has frequently

been regarded as an aspect of the

Bible that is unhistorical or even

untrue. Without the resurrection,

however, there would be no

Christianity and therefore no

church. Jörg Zink argues articulately

why, for believers, there is no

alternative to the resurrection.
