No longer can Acts be seen as a simple apologia that articulates Christianity's harmlessness vis-à-vis Rome. Rather, in its attempt to form communities that witness to God's apocalypse, author Kavin Rowe argues that Luke's second volume is a highly charged and theologically sophisticated political document. Luke aims at nothing less than the construction of a new culture - a total pattern of life - that inherently runs counter to the constitutive aspects of Graeco-Roman society.
English summary: According to Vitor Hugo Schell, the Book of Acts is a historical work of art. In this volume, his comparative analysis of Paul's Areopagus sermon in Acts 17 and Hellenistic-Jewish historian Flavius Josephus' written observations lead to the discovery of new facets of the Luke-Acts author's literary strategies. The Areopagus speech is juxtaposed to the Bellum and Antiquities speeches, the two longest Josephus representations and the only surviving examples of a limited "subgenus" within early Jewish historiography. Fundamental questions posed by this study are how Josephus' writings facilitate a better understanding of both Paul's Areopagus speech and the Acts' author, and how Josephus is perceived as an ancient historian. The comparison of formal and thematic characteristics makes a specific contribution to interpreting the apostle's famous address to the Athenians and the entire Lucan work. German description: Vitor Hugo Schell betrachtet die Apostelgeschichte als historisches Kunstwerk und versucht, durch die Analyse der Areopagrede im 17. Kapitel, neue Facetten der literarischen Strategien ihres Verfassers zu entdecken. Durch einen Vergleich mit Josephus gewinnt er eine neue Perspektive der wissenschaftlichen Betrachtung der Apg und der Areopagrede. Die Areopagrede wird den Reden aus Bellum und Antiquitates, den zwei langsten Darstellungen des Josephus und den einzigen erhaltenen Beispielen einer begrenzten "Untergattung" innerhalb der fruhjudischen Historiographie, gegenubergestellt. Dabei lautet eine der grundlegenden Fragen des Autors: Wie tragen die Reden bei Josephus zum besseren Verstandnis der Areopagrede aber auch zum Verstandnis des Verfassers der Apg, sowie des Josephus als antikem Geschichtsschreiber bei? Vitor Hugo Schells Vergleich von formalen und thematischen Merkmalen der Areopagrede mit entsprechenden Merkmalen bei Josephus leistet einen spezifischen Beitrag fur die Interpretation dieser Rede und des gesamten lukanischen Werkes.

Fergus Kerr, OP is one of the foremost Catholic theologians of his generation. His works are widely read by specialists and students in the UK, North America and across the world. His 'Theology after Wittgenstein' is regarded as a seminal work in philosophical theology. His 'After Aquinas: Versions of Thomism' and 'Twentieth Century Catholic Theologians' are two of the finest student-focussed introductions to their topics currently available. The essays in this collection cover the two key areas of Kerr's contribution: the relationship between theology and philosophy, focusing particularly on Thomism; and twentieth century Catholic thought. These themes provide the volume's coherence. A key strength of this volume lies in the stature of its contributors. These include the Canadian Catholic philosopher and Templeton-laureate Charles Taylor, Stanley Hauerwas, John Milbank, David Burrell and Denys Turner. A number of younger contributors, representing the influence of Kerr over several generations, are also represented.
In this groundbreaking, cross-disciplinary work of philosophy and biblical studies, New Testament scholar C. Kavin Rowe explores the promise and problems inherent in engaging rival philosophical claims to what is true. Juxtaposing the Roman Stoics Seneca, Epictetus, and Marcus Aurelius with the Christian saints Paul, Luke, and Justin Martyr, and incorporating the contemporary views of Jeffrey Stout, Alasdair McIntyre, Charles Taylor, Martha Nussbaum, Pierre Hadot, and others, the author suggests that in a world of religious pluralism there is negligible gain in sampling from separate belief systems. This thought-provoking volume reconceives the relationship between ancient philosophy and emergent Christianity as a rivalry between strong traditions of life and offers powerful arguments for the exclusive commitment to a community of belief and a particular form of philosophical life as the path to existential truth.
Was heißt es, daß wir heute in einem säkularen Zeitalter leben? Was ist geschehen zwischen 1500 – als Gott noch seinen festen Platz im naturwissenschaftlichen Kosmos, im gesellschaftlichen Gefüge und im Alltag der Menschen hatte – und heute, da der Glaube an Gott, jedenfalls in der westlichen Welt, nur noch eine Option unter vielen ist? Um diesen Wandel zu bestimmen und in seinen Folgen für die gegenwärtige Gesellschaft auszuloten, muß die große Geschichte der Säkularisierung in der nordatlantischen Welt von der frühen Neuzeit bis in die Gegenwart erzählt werden – ein herkulisches Unterfangen, dem sich der kanadische Philosoph Charles Taylor in seinem mit Spannung erwarteten neuen Buch stellt. Mit einem Fokus auf dem »lateinischen Christentum«, dem vorherrschenden Glauben in Europa, rekonstruiert er in geradezu verschwenderischem Detail die entscheidenden Entwicklungslinien in den Naturwissenschaften, der Philosophie, der Staats- und Rechtstheorie und in den Künsten. Dem berühmten Diktum von der wissenschaftlich-technischen »Entzauberung der Welt« und anderen eingeschliffenen Säkularisierungstheorien setzt er die These entgegen, daß es die Religion selbst war, die das Säkulare hervorgebracht hat, und entfaltet eine komplexe Mentalitätsgeschichte des modernen Subjekts, das heute im Niemandsland zwischen Glauben und Atheismus gefangen ist.
