Wie Gott fertig wird mit unseren Fehlern

Bonhoeffers spannungsvoller Glaube an Gottes Handeln in der Geschichte – im Gespräch mit dem »Open Theism«
von: Lisanne Teuchert

The essay deals with a central question of the doctrine of providence under the conditions of modernity drawing on Bonhoeffer. How can we conceptualize God’s action in a »world come of age«? Starting from the unresolved tension between God’s omnipotence and powerlessness in Bonhoeffer’s oeuvre, this contribution traces this question on the basis of the »articles of faith on the sovereignty of God in history« (in: Prisoner of God: Letters and Papers from Prison, enl. ed. 1997), drawing parallels from here to open theism, a recent development of US-American theology that reformulates God’s omnipotence into omni-competence: God copes with our decisions and actions. The problems resulting from this theorem are solved with the help of another category of Bonhoeffer’s, namely of a claim. God’s action hence appears as claiming a world come of age.

Begegnung mit dem Wort

Hans Joachim Iwand als Bibeltheologe
von: Martin Bauspieß

The biblical exegesis of Hans Joachim Iwand (1899–1960) deliberately focusses on the question of the present relevance of biblical texts; hence it aims at the interface of scholarly exegesis and churchly preaching. Still relevant today, it needs clarification at the particular interface. In his exegetical oeuvre, Iwand appears as a firm proponent of the theology of the Word of God who develops his view of the church in his examination of biblical texts. This ecclesiology, which is substantially informed by Luther, is exemplified based on his homiletic meditations (»Predigtmeditationen«) on Matt 16:13–20. The church evolves out of the constant encounter with God’s revelation in Jesus Christ. It hence lives through its »encounter with the Word«. Iwand’s homiletic meditations are the concrete expression of the search for this encounter connecting theological work and churchly preaching.

»Da wurden ihnen die Augen aufgetan.«

Der Sündenfall-Mythos als anthropologisches Drama
von: Bernd Oberdorfer

The biblical story of Adam’s and Eve’s fate in paradise (Gen 3) is one of the most powerful narrations in cultural history. As part of the biblical ›Primeval History‹, it has shaped the image of the human condition far beyond its theological content. This contribution first reconstructs the internal dynamics of the text as an anthropological drama about the loss of original familiarity with the world. The second part draws important trajectories of the Christian reception history of Gen 3. It was only then that this story was understood as story of the ›Fall of Man‹ and hence theologized as etiology for the human need of redemption. Yet the polyvalence of the text remained. In the modern period, the act of eating from the tree of knowledge of good and evil could be understood as an important step towards human autonomy and dignity.

Konfessionslose Schülerinnen und Schüler

Eine lohnende Herausforderung für den Religionsunterricht
von: Michael Domsgen

Across Germany, the number of students without religious affiliation has increased. But the lack of religious affiliation is not to be identified with atheism. Additionally, different trends in Eastern and Western Germany should be taken into account. In sum one could say that, in most cases, the lack of religious affiliation stands for a spectrum of multiple secularities. Thus new perspectives are introduced into religious education which touch upon the questions of contextuality, relevance and elementarization in a special way. This has ramifications for the profiling of religious education, which is described referring to systemic perspectives and approaches of empowerment.
