In this biography -- translated for the first time into English -- German theologian Oswald Bayer describes the life and work of journalist-theologian Johann Georg Hamann (1730 1788). At a time when it seemed that the forces of secularization were attempting to claim the future, Hamann churned out small publications aimed at undermining the Enlightenment zeitgeist, turning its assumptions upside down and skewering its pretensions. Although largely forgotten until recent times, Hamann as radical dissenter -- whom Goethe called the "brightest man of his age" -- remains relevant today, as Bayer shows in this book.
Die paulinische Rezeption der Heiligen Schrift stellt die Forschung bis heute vor ein Grundproblem: Wie lassen sich ihre unterschiedlichen Ausprägungen in den Texten des Paulus und seiner Schüler erklären? Um diese Frage einer Antwort zuzuführen, vereint der vorliegende Band Studien zu den traditionsgeschichtlichen und biographischen Grundlagen des paulinischen Schriftgebrauchs, zu seinen vielfältigen brieflichen Ausprägungen und zu seinen Wirkungen in späteren Schriften des Neuen Testaments. Den analytischen Rahmen bilden Beiträge zur Methodik der paulinischen Schriftrezeption sowie zur Reflexion ihrer hermeneutischen Implikationen. Mit Beiträgen von Stefan Alkier, Lukas Bormann, Jan Dochhorn, Jörg Frey, Richard B. Hays, Bart J. Koet, Markus Lang, David Lincicum, Markus Öhler, Stanley E. Porter, Mark A. Seifried, J. Ross Wagner und Florian Wilk.
The book honours the Rev. Dr. Robert A Kolb, retired Director of the Institute for Mission Studies and Missions Professor in systematic theology at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, and perhaps the leading authority on the development of “Wittenberg Theology” in the English-speaking world. At the same time, his teaching and writing, which continues without flagging, has emphasized the importance of translating and retranslating the historic Lutheran faith in terms that address contemporary issues and contemporary people. In this volume, colleagues and co-workers address and push forward Kolb insights into the history of the Reformation era and on the impact of those Reformation issues (and quarrels) on the life of the church in the world today. With contributions by Charles Arand, L’ubomir Batka, Amy Nelson Burnett, Irene Dingel, Mary Jane Haemig, Scott Hendrix, Erik Herrmann, Werner Klän, David Lumpp, Mark Mattes, Daniel Mattson, Richard Muller, Paul Robinson, Robert Rosin, and Timothy Wengert.
Disagreement is inevitable, particularly in our current context, marked by the close coexistence of conflicting values and perspectives in politics, religion, and ethics. How can we deal with disagreement ethically and constructively in our pluralistic world? In Disagreeing Virtuously Olli-Pekka Vainio presents a valuable interdisciplinary approach to that question, drawing on insights from intellectual history, the cognitive sciences, philosophy of religion, and virtue theory. After mapping the current discussion on disagreement among various disciplines, Vainio offers fresh ways to understand the complicated nature of human disagreement and recommends ways to manage our interpersonal and intercommunal conflicts in ethically sustainable ways.
The Oxford Handbook to European Romanticism is a guide to European Romanticism written for an English-speaking audience. It finishes with a chapter on the European Romantic attitude to Britain. The authors are all expert in the original languages of the writers and topics which they discuss. European Romanticism sits in an epochal period full of historical excitement, beginning with the French Revolution and extending to the uprisings of 1848 acrossEurope. It witnessed what was arguably the first world war, against Napoleon, and the post-Napoleonic settlement at the Congress of Vienna which shaped the Europe which lasted until the Great War. Germany'sgreatest writer, Goethe, and Russia's, Pushkin, lived during this time. Other writers from different countries are comparably important - Mme de Staël, the founder of the sociology of literature and the original cultural commentator in her book On Germany; Giacomo Leopardi, the second greatest Italian poet after Dante; Victor Hugo, greates French writer of the 19th century, hélas, and many others.
As celebrations of the five-hundredth anniversary of Martin Luther's initiation of the most dramatic reform movement in the history of Christianity approach, 47 essays by historians and theologians from 15 countries provide insight into the background and context, the content, and the impact of his way of thought. Nineteenth-century Chinese educational reformers, twentieth-century African and Indian social reformers, German philosophers and Christians of many traditions on every continent have found in Luther's writings stimulation and provocation for addressing modern problems. This volume offers studies of the late medieval intellectual milieus in which his thought was formed, the hermeneutical principles that guided his reading and application of the Bible, the content of his formulations of Christian teaching on specific topics, his social and ethic thought, the ways in which his contemporaries, both supporters and opponents, helped shape his ideas, the role of specific genre in developing his positions on issues of the day, and the influences he has exercised in the past and continues to exercise today in various parts of the world and the Christian church. Authors synthesize the scholarly debates and analysis of Luther's thinking and point to future areas of research and exploration of his thought.
English summary: Few Luther scholars are more accomplished, and still fewer more influential, than Tubingen's Oswald Bayer. In this wide-ranging overview of the theology of Martin Luther, B. leads the reader skillfully through a comprehensive survey of the most important, and often confusing, themes in Luther's theology. In the process, he demonstrates Luther's continuing relevance, including some of his potential contributions to contemporary theology. [...] it is important once again to emphasize the immense erudition and analytical depth reflected in this superb volume. This is an essential contribution to the field of Luther studies, one that scholars should now consult as a matter of course. All of us who continue to find Luther fascinating are very much in the author's debt.Mickey L. Mattox in Theological Studies 2006, 189f. German description: Die Lekture von 'Martin Luthers Theologie' wirkt anregend, besonders durch Bayers gekonnte Auswahl von Originaltexten Luthers, die er kommentiert, ja geradezu meditiert. Er zeigt: Luther ist ein theologischer Klassiker von allerhochster Aktualitat und - zumindest im Dialog mit der romisch-katholischen Kirche der Gegenwart - von grosster okumenischer Reichweite und Bedeutung.Annemarie C. Mayer in Theologische Quartalschrift 186, 2006, S. 70f.Oswald Bayer gelingt es in gewohnter Weise, gewichtige theologische Themen so vorzustellen, dass der Leser neugierig wird, tiefer zu graben und weiter zu forschen. Es ist sein Verdienst, mit diesem Werk die Bedeutung der Theologie Luthers fur unsere Gegenwart stilistisch glanzend und fur alle theologisch interessierten Christen gut lesbar erschlossen zu haben, nicht ohne hier und da auch zu markieren, wo die Grenzen solcher Gegenwartsbedeutung Luthers liegen.Armin Wenz in Lutherische Beitrage 10 (2005), 253-255
