In einer Phase von Selbstzweifeln und Depression gerät Emmanuel Carrère in eine Krise des Unglaubens. Er wendet sich dem Christentum zu und versucht, sich zum Glauben zu überzeugen. Nach einer Zeit der intensiven Auseinandersetzung mit den Ursprüngen des Christentums und dem Versuch, konsequent den christlichen Idealen zu folgen, gerät er in eine zweite Krise, eine Krise des Glaubens. In radikaler Ehrlichkeit stellt sich der vernunft- und psychoanalysegeprägte Pariser Intellektuelle der Gretchenfrage und der eigenen Tradition : Was bedeutet uns der Glaube, was uns persönlich und was unserer Gesellschaft ? Um dieser Frage auf den Grund zu gehen, vertieft er sich in die Anfänge des Christentums, er findet Identifikationsfiguren in Paulus, dem Revolutionär, Lukas, dem Intellektuellen und fragt nach der Kraft, mit der es ihnen gelang, etwas zu glauben, was niemand sonst glaubte und eine so machtvolle Tradition zu begründen. Er bringt diese überaus fesselnde frühe Geschichte des Christentums, voll politischer und gesellschaftlicher Unruhen und Intrigen, dem Leser so nahe, dass dieser unmittelbar herausgefordert wird, sein eigenes Verhältnis zur Tradition und zum Glauben zu hinterfragen. Carrère gelingt es in diesem einzigartigen und brisanten Buch, seine eigene Lebens- und Glaubensgeschichte mit der historischen Handlung zu verweben und den Leser mit den unendlichen Facetten des Glaubens und Nichtglaubens zu konfrontieren. Ob ablehnend oder bejahend : An den Fragen des Glaubens kommt heute niemand vorbei.

Can unselfish love save the world? How can we accumulate the essential blessings of a happy life? What emotions must we abandon-and which should we embrace-to find joy? Such conundrums were ever on the mind of James Allen, one of the most popular writers in the fields of inspiration and spirituality at the turn of the 20th century. In this crisp, cheerful little book, he explores the possibilities of contentment and comfort the answers bring. A classic of spiritual succor, first published in 1908, this is as vital and as necessary a work as it was a century ago. British author and pop philosopher JAMES ALLEN (1864-1912) retired from the business world to pursue a life of writing and contemplation. Best known for As a Man Thinketh, he authored many other books about the power of thought including The Path to Prosperity, The Mastery of Destiny, and Byways of Blessedness.

In the New Testament purifyng it from the Jewish nationalism Jesus puts in prominence the moral character of the Kingdom of God, making it the gift of grace underlining its eschatological and transcendent essence. In Jesus words and actions the Kingdom of God was present in its fullness. In the eschatological sense Christ's life, death and resurrection belong to the history of the kingdom of God. Since the resurection the history of the Kingdom of God has become the history of the missions. The Kingdom of God is the redemptive reign of God dynamically active to eteblish his rule among men, and this Kingdom has already come into human history in the person and mission of Jesus to overcome evil to deliver humans from its power, and to bring them into the blessings of God's reign. The church remains on earth as the as the sign of the kingdom of God, namely as the presence of Christ after the ascension. She prolongs and continues the mistery of Christ and his mission in the world. The second Vatican Council understands the term as a series of works done by God (SC 35; DV 2) from creation(LG2) to parousia (LG 48) and includes also human co-operation with grace (LG 65) Christ, the Lord of all active in creation, points to God the Father who in the Spirit leads and guides history. It is in this context that we have to undestand the active presence of the Triune God in other religions. Thus the Kingdom of God is Christocentric and Trinitarian. (Novo Millennio Ineunte 5). At the centre of the new evangelization there should be, always, Jesus Christ, Way, Truth, and Life. New Evangelization signifies the announcing of the Good News, i.e., God loves humans, he saves them in Jesus Christ, his Son, and calls them to salvation

Creating the Kingdom of Ends

Christine Korsgaard has become one of the leading interpreters of Kant's moral philosophy. She is identified with a small group of philosophers who are intent on producing a version of Kant's moral philosophy that is at once sensitive to its historical roots while revealing its particular relevance to contemporary problems. She rejects the traditional picture of Kant's ethics as a cold vision of the moral life which emphasises duty at the expense of love and value. Rather, Kant's work is seen as providing a resource for addressing not only the metaphysics of morals, but also for tackling practical questions about personal relations, politics, and everyday human interaction. This collection contains some of the finest current work on Kant's ethics and will command the attention of all those involved in teaching and studying moral theory.

The truth of life well lived is simple; it always has been. Throughout humankind's history, the Father/Mother God's guiding light has shone through a band of humble yet powerful brothers and sisters, masters all. The Great Brother-/Sisterhood of Light has shone the light of its love throughout the world during all of its evolution. Most of its loving membership has remained beyond the shadowy veil of human consciousness, but here and there, its presence has been felt directly on the Earth plane. Usually hidden away from the chaos and darkness of the world's busy highways and byways, the masters have remained anonymous to all but a few worthy souls who have dedicated themselves selflessly to the laws of love and truth, and have served humanity humbly in a thousand different ways throughout history. These are the disciples of the masters, souls who act as instruments stepping down the powerful frequencies of pure love into digestible portions that humanity can use to brighten its way along the journey home to the Christ consciousness. One such soul is Edith Bruce. This little book, spiritually rich in wisdom and timely in terms of current world changes, has been assembled from a series of channeled readings given through the Reverend Edith Bruce by the Great Brother-/Sisterhood of Light. These readings were then reconstructed in such a manner as to provide continuity.

Desert Arabs and urban Americans encountered one another well before the discovery of oil on the Arabian Peninsula. Doctors for the Kingdom tells the stories of several physicians and nurses who committed their lives to the work of the Arabian Mission of the Reformed Church in America, known in the Middle East as "The American Mission." These courageous individuals left behind the comforts of their homeland in favor of serving the peoples of the Arabian Gulf. They brought modern healthcare to the emerging leaders of the region and their people. They overcame many obstacles to do their work, often laboring in primitive conditions, but did so gladly. Their work was deeply appreciated and created lasting impressions. These are stories of people coming together to create relationships of significance. This history needs to be known and understood if we are going to address the issues of our day.

The Language of the Kingdom and Jesus

Parable, Aphorism, and Metaphor in the Sayings Material Common to the Synoptic Tradition and the Gospel of Thomas

This study interprets Jesus' parables and the sayings tradition regarding the Kingdom of God from a cognitive linguistic understanding of metaphor. It also shows what contribution the theory of metaphor can make when the parables and aphorisms are studied in research on the historical Jesus. The metaphoric nature and polyvalency of the parables and aphorisms of the Jesus tradition undermine their value for research on the historical Jesus. The author doubts whether the parables and sayings of the Jesus tradition can be employed to reconstruct the historical Jesus.
