Abstract

Autor v německy psané studii klade otázku, co se odehrálo v kruhu Ježíšových přívrženců po Ježíšově ukřižování. Víme, že učedníci Ježíše po jeho zatčení opustili, s největší pravděpodobností odešli zpět do Galileje. Je obecně známou skutečností, že v Jeruzalémě vznikl záhy okruh Ježíšových přívrženců, v němž získal přední postavení Ježíšův rodný bratr Jakub. K tomuto kruhu se posléze připojila z Galileje se navrátivší skupina apokalyptického radikalismu nejbližších Ježíšových učedníků. Odlišného zaměření byla v Jeruzalémě skupina kolem Štěpána. Samostatnou kapitolu tvoří Pavlovo pochopení Ježíšova kříže a vzkříšení, zachycené v Pavlově formuli víry, I. Korintským 15,1-3. Mezi Jakubem a Pavlem došlo posléze k tvrdému sporu o otázku, zda křesťané nežidovského původu jsou povinni dodržovat ustanovení židovského zákona. Kardinální otázka ovšem zní, co se odehrálo v prvních dnech, týdnech, bezprostředně po Ježíšově ukřižování? Autor vyslovuje argumentovanou hypotézu, že zvolání „maranata“ v galilejském kruhu apokalyptických radikálů z Ježíšova nejbližšího okruhu, bylo onou první jiskrou, která dala do pohybu proces vznikání křesťanské víry. Tuto hypotézu argumentuje řadou odkazů, že zvolání bylo známo již v Kumránu, odkud je doloženo v Didaché. To znamená, že nikoli víra ve vzkříšení dala vzniknout očekávání Ježíšova příchodu, návratu, parusie, nýbrž vizionářské očekávání parusie, provázené zvoláním maranata, dalo vzniknout víře ve vzkříšení. V této nejstarší vrstvě nelze ještě označit očekávání parusie jako očekávání druhého Kristova příchodu. Tam očekávání posouvá až Pavel, pro kterého již Ježíšův kříž byl vykupitelským dějstvím poslaného božího Syna. Mottem Fundovy knihy Ježíš a mýtus o Kristu (Praha, Karolinum 2007, 366 stran) je Popperova věta, že i velmi smělé hypotézy, které se nepotvrdily, poponášejí dopředu naše poznání.

Abstract

The meaning of "reformatory theology" is often summarised by a number of "alone"-statements: Christ alone (solus Christus) by grace alone (sola gratia) through faith alone (sola fide) on the basis of the Scripture alone (sola scriptura). But can these terms express concisely what recent (Protestant) Christianity stands for? The articles look into this question from a systematic, historical and ecumenical perspective.

Abstract

The purpose of this scholarly book is to expand the body of knowledge available on urban theology. It introduces readers to the concept of planetary urbanisation, with the view of deepening an understanding of urbanisation and its all-pervasive impact on the planet, people and places from a theological perspective. A critical theological reading of ‘the urban’ is also provided, deliberating on bridging the divide between voices from the Global South and the Global North. In doing so, this book simultaneously seeks out robust and dynamic faith constructs, expressed in various forms and embodiments of justice. The methodology chosen transcended narrow disciplinary boundaries, situating reflections between and across disciplines, in the interface between scholarly reflection and an activist faith, as well as between local rootedness and global connectedness. This was facilitated by the collected gathering of authors, spanning all continents, various Christian faith traditions and multiple disciplines, as well as a range of methodological approaches. The book endeavours to contribute to knowledge production in a number of ways. Firstly, it suggests the inadequacy of most dominant faith expressions in the face of all-pervasive forces of urbanisation, and it also provides clues as to the possibility of fostering potent alternative imaginaries. Secondly, it explores a decolonial faith that is expressed in various forms of justice. It is an attempt to offer concrete embodiments of what such a faith could look like in the context of planetary urbanisation. Thirdly, the book does not focus on one specific urban challenge or mode of ministry but rather introduces the concept of planetary urbanisation and then offers critical lenses with which to interrogate its consequences and challenges. It considers concrete and liberating faith constructs in areas ranging from gender, race, economic inequality, a solidarity economics and housing to urban violence, indigeneity and urbanisation, the interface between economic and environmental sustainability, and grass-roots theological education.

Abstract

"Exploring faith-based organizations (FBOs) in current developmental discourses and practice, this book presents a selection of empirical in-depth case-studies of Christian FBOs and assesses the vital role credited to FBOs in current discourses on development. Examining the engagement of FBOs with contemporary politics of development, the contributions stress the agency of FBOs in diverse contexts of development policy, both local and global. It is emphasised that FBOs constitute boundary agents and developmental entrepreneurs: they move between different discursive fields such as national and international development discourses, theological discourses, and their specific religious constituencies. By combining influxes from these different contexts, FBOs generate unique perspectives on development: they express alternative views on development and stress particular approaches anchored in their theological social ethics. This book should be of interest to those researching FBOs and their interaction with international organizations, and to scholars working in the broader areas of religion and politics and politics and development."

Abstract

This is a book about young people—youth and emerging adults. The contributors investigate the religious and spiritual lives of young people, especially as they relate to inclinations to do good for others. This edited volume is the result of a special issue that invited social scientific insights on responses to these questions. The background for this volume, summarized below, is the evolving life course developmental processes, as well as the culmination of numerous social and cultural changes in recent decades and their implications for socialization of religiosity, spirituality, and generosity. The included chapters focus on the faith and giving of youth and emerging adults, in the United States and internationally. The emphasis is on research that contributes breadth to social scientific understandings of religion, charitable giving, volunteering, generosity, youth, and emerging adults. We are especially interested in trends related to participation in religious and civic organizations, including changing cultural structures, beliefs, and orientations to faith and giving in less formal or non-organizational contexts.

Abstract

This volume assembles contributions from different academic perspectives (religious and Islamic studies, literary and theatre studies, theology, sociology and history) on modern manifestations of martyrdom in the diverse Middle Eastern religious traditions, including Islam, Christianity, Judaism and the Baha'i-faith. The latter is considered in more detail since it is often not included in comparative studies on the monotheistic religions. An excursus into the farer East composes the contribution on Mahatma Ghandi. The volume considers central sociological, philosophical and theological problems which lie at the heart of the phenomenon of martyrdom, the significance of martyrdom in different conflicts, the competing martyr figures which develop in the course of these conflicts as well as the accompanying representations in art and ritual.

Abstract

The aim of this book is to provide a way to do justice to an African language of faith. In systematic theology, anthropology and philosophy of religion, similar debates about how to interpret an African language of faith are ongoing. Trying to avoid the ‘othering’ discourses of past generations, scholars are careful to take seriously what people in Africa say without portraying people’s beliefs as weird or backward. Yet, in their desperate attempts to avoid othering, these theologians, anthropologists and philosophers often painfully misconstrue the language of faith in Africa. Understanding the language of faith in Southern Africa is not an easy task. How should we take seriously the form of language that often seems so strange and different? I argue that, after African inculturation theology and black liberation theology, a better way to make sense of being a Christian in Southern Africa is to pay close attention to people’s language of faith. The way in which people speak of the spirit world or powers in Africa appears strange to outsiders, and the sense of community and the holistic worldview differentiates the African way of life from its Euro-American counterparts. When proper attention is paid to the use of concepts like spirit world, power, community and holism, language of faith in Southern Africa is neither as strange as it may seem, nor as romantic. By investigating these distinguishing concepts that colour language of faith in Southern Africa, this book contributes to future projects of both fellow theologians who try to construct a contemporary African theology and those who are interested in theology in Africa given the well-known southward shift of the centre of gravity of Christianity.
