What is this World? What kind of place is it? “The round kind. The spinning kind. The moist kind. The inhabited kind. The kind with flamingos (real and artificial). The kind where water in the sky turns into beautifully symmetrical crystal flakes sculpted by artists unable to stop themselves (in both design and quantity). The kind of place with tiny, powerfully jawed mites assigned to the carpets to eat my dead skin as it flakes off . . . The kind with people who kill and people who love and people who do both . . . This world is beautiful but badly broken. “I love it as it is, because it is a story, and it isn’t stuck in one place. It is full of conflict and darkness like every good story, a world of surprises and questions to explore. And there’s someone behind it; there are uncomfortable answers to the hows and whys and whats. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Through Him were all things made . . . Welcome to His poem. His play. His novel. Let the pages flick your thumbs.”

When we take a Bible in our hands, we are actually holding a user’s manual for fathers. Story after story, it reveals our heavenly Father’s love for his Son—and for us. It also shares the accounts of earthly fathers whose examples we’ll want to either imitate or avoid.The twelve chapters in Fathers of the Bible offer slices from the biblical stories of men who were fathers. From them, we can learn something about the tasks, privileges, challenges, and failures of fatherhood. We’ll discover the faithfulness of Noah, the conniving of Jacob, the unbridled passion of David, and the quiet confidence of Joseph, Jesus’ earthly father.Each of these men were dads. Their geographic settings and life circumstances were vastly different from ours, but the struggles and challenges of fatherhood are remarkably similar.Designed for personal prayer and study or for use in small groups, Fathers of the Biblewill help you ground your relationship with your children on God’s Word.

Kann ich glauben, auch wenn mir Schlimmes widerfahren ist? - Trost und Hilfe von einem, der ein Tal voller Tränen durchwandert hat - Eine glaubwürdige Anregung, Gott auch im Leid als gütig und gerecht anzunehmen Wie kann Gott es zulassen, dass Menschen, die an ihn glauben und ihr Leben an ihm ausrichten, von schweren Schicksalsschlägen getroffen werden? Harald Kushner schrieb dieses Buch aus Anlass der Krankheit und des Todes seines Sohnes. Er gibt hier Anregungen, wie Betroffene mit dem menschlichen Leid und der damit verbundenen Frage nach der Gerechtigkeit Gottes umgehen können. Für sich beantwortet Kushner die Frage der Theodizee, indem er Gott seine Allmacht abspricht und sagt, dass Gott nicht die Quelle des Leids ist und es auch nicht verhindern kann. Dieses Buch bietet von Leid betroffenen Menschen Trost und wirkliche Hilfe.

English summary: Why does the church have four different written Gospels, although according to Paul there was only one orally proclaimed Gospel from the very beginning? Martin Hengel attempts to answer this question by showing how the collection of the four Gospels developed in the 2nd century and by tracing their origins. The reading of these four Gospels, in addition to the texts of the Old Testament, during the church service played a decisive role in the collection and the affirmation of these Gospels as part of the church canon. The author also deals with the authors of the Gospels and the time in which they were written. He bases his study on the fact that Mark was the first to write a Gospel. It is very probable that Matthew, who wrote the later Gospel, was familiar with the earlier Gospel according to Luke and that he used this. The numerous minor agreements between Luke and Matthew against Mark make it reasonable to suppose this hypothesis to be correct.This is the substantially enlarged German version of the English book The Four Gospels and the One Gospel of Jesus Christ, translated by John Bowden, published by SCM Press in the year 2000. German description: Warum besitzt die Kirche vier verschiedene schriftliche Evangelien, obwohl es nach Paulus von Anfang an nur ein mundlich verkundigtes Evangelium gab? Martin Hengel beginnt seine Untersuchung mit der Verteidigung der Vierer-Sammlung durch Irenaus und die teilweise abweichende Haltung des Clemens Alexandrinus. Es folgen die Zeugnisse des 2. Jh.s sowie das Problem der handschriftlichen Uberlieferung. Besonders beachtet werden Hinweise auf ihre Autoren, die Reihenfolge ihrer Entstehung, ihre Uberschriften und ihr Gebrauch im Gottesdienst. Die Papiasnotizen richten den Blick auf das erste und zweite Evangelium. Ihr ungewohnlicher Titel geht auf Markus zuruck. Er schrieb das 'Urevanglium' und schuf damit eine neue literarische Gattung. Eine entscheidende Rolle bei der Sammlung und Durchsetzung der kanonisch gewordenen Evangelien spielen ihre Lesung im Gottesdienst neben den Texten des Alten Testaments. Wesentlich war auch die Entstehung vorbildlicher 'Gemeindebibliotheken' in einflussreichen Gemeinden wie Rom und die Verwendung der Codexform, die auf erste kleinere Sammlungen von Jesustradition in eNotizbuchern' zuruckgehen kann. Alle vier Evangelien sind 'kerygmatische Geschichtsschreibung', ihr Vorbild ist letztlich die 'heilsgeschichtliche' Erzahlung im Alten Testamtent. Dass die Kirche vier verschiedene Evangelien akzeptierte, druckt theologisch die Einheit in der Vielfalt ihrer Verkundigung aus. In einem Postskriptum behandelt Martin Hengel die Fragwurdigkeit der Q-Hypothese und die partielle Abhangigkeit des spateren Matthaus vom fruheren Lukas, die sich auch aus den minor agreements ergibt. Anstatt von einer 'Q-Quelle' sollte man besser von einer vielfaltigen 'Logientradition' sprechen, die allen drei Synoptikern vorlag.

Er stieg hoch, fiel tief und stand wieder auf, um zu einem weiteren Höhenflug anzusetzen: Johnny Cash, 1932-2003, war und ist eine Ikone, weit über die Countrymusikszene, in der er sich bewegte, hinaus. Legendär waren seine Konzerte in den Gefängnissen Folsom und San Quentin Ende der 60er-Jahre. Besonders aber mit seinen letzten vier Alben, den "American Recordings", fand er weltweit große Anerkennung. Cash, der den Beinamen "Man in Black" trug, hat in seiner Karriere etwa 500 Songs geschrieben, mehr als 53 Millionen Tonträger verkauft und wurde mit 13 Grammy Awards ausgezeichnet. Spätestens seit dem Kinofilm "Walk the Line" von 2006 ist er im allgemeinen Bewusstsein als Musik-Ikone verankert.
