The author presents an introduction to Systematic Theology which illustrates the essential relationship between dogmatics and ethics. This relationship is based on the idea that religion and human behavior correlate internally. The aim is to describe Christian existence as a way of living in responsibility before God and with commitment to the common good of society, which provides the necessary external frame of the church as a religious community and its existence in love and hope. Der Autor legt eine Einleitung in die Systematische Theologie vor, die im Gegensatz zu allen gleichartigen Publikationen die wesentliche Verknüpfung der materialen Dogmatik und der Ethik auf der Grundlage der Prinzipienlehre aufzeigt. Sie will der Verselbständigung dieser Disziplinen in der evangelischen Theologie der Gegenwart entgegenwirken. Im Rahmen einer theoretischen Bestimmung der Funktion der Religion für das Gemeinwohl der Gesellschaft verankert sie die explikative Aufgabe der Systematischen Theologie in der kirchlichen Kommunikation des Evangeliums, in welcher dessen Wahrheit und dessen motivierende Kraft durch Gottes Geist für die Lebensgewissheit der Person offenbar wird. Aus der Besinnung auf den Grund und Gegenstand des Glaubens ergibt sich für die Glaubensgemeinschaft der Kirche das dogmatische Interesse, das Walten Gottes in Schöpfung, Versöhnung und Vollendung zu erkennen; und es ergibt sich aus ihr ebenso das ethische Interesse, die spezifische Verantwortung der christlichen Existenz für das Gemeinwohl in der Risikogesellschaft einer ökonomisch dominierten Kultur - also in Wirtschaft, Staat, Wissenschaft und Technik - zu reflektieren.
Sebastian von Eschburg, scion of a wealthy, self-destructive family, survived his disastrous childhood to become a celebrated if controversial artist. He casts a provocative shadow over the Berlin scene; his disturbing photographs and installations show that truth and reality are two distinct things. When Sebastian is accused of murdering a young woman and the police investigation takes a sinister turn, seasoned lawyer Konrad Biegler agrees to represent him - and hopes to help himself in the process. But Biegler soon learns that nothing about the case - or the suspect - is what it appears. The new thriller from the acclaimed author of The Collini Case, The Girl Who Wasn´t There is dark, ingenious and irresistibly gripping. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cameron Stewart.

How Europe can hit the reset button after years of failed responses to North African turmoilThe ongoing upheaval in North Africa has presented many challenges to Europe, which previously had been comfortable with the status quo of authoritarian leadership in much of the region. Now in its ninth year, the turmoil has forced European leaders to rethink their approaches to the region, based on the now-obvious reality that the brief hopes of early 2011 for the spread of democracy and economic progress will not be fulfilled anytime soon.In this book, experts from Europe, the United States, and the Middle East discuss what has happened since the so-called Arab Spring emerged and how those often-bewildering events have affected both North Africa and the European states across the Mediterranean. The book is based on papers presented at a March 2018 conference sponsored by the South Mediterranean Regional Program of the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung. Chapters focus on events in Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, and Tunisiaand offer ideas for how the European Union can adopt fresh approaches to the region, moving beyond its frequently uncertain and shifting responses of recent years.
