Abstract

The reformed theologian Max L. Stackhouse develops a differentiated analysis and interpretation of globalization as part of his public theology. He consistently refers to Kuyper’s concept of common grace and transfers Kuyper’s teaching into a hermeneutical approach to sociological analysis. First, the paper sketches Stackhouse’s understanding of globalization as a theological process, then analyses the influences of Kuyper’s theology of grace and finally shows the theological roots of Stackhouse’s doctrine of grace and methodological problems associated with it. It closes with remarks on the opportunities and limits of Stackhouse’s approach to the theological interpretation of globalization.

Abstract

Digital technologies are increasingly transforming communication, culture, and the public sphere. These developments lead to new hybrid spaces and publics, propelling a cultural change that affects not only our understanding of public but also the way we think and act as public theologians. This article examines the implications of this change for a public theology in and for digital spaces in relation to current debates about digital theology.

Outlining different governances of digital public spaces, it reflects on the hermeneutical and epistemological implications for theological thinking of and in public spaces. Taking up the debates of digital theology, it highlights the challenges of changing theological models and concepts in the search for theologies of the digital.

Abstract

This article examines how public theologians aim to bring their theology into the practice of the church. In the first part it analyses the references to the church in the work of contemporary public theologians from the United States and Germany and suggests four different categories for the relations explored (explicit function, implicit function, public church, church as public). In the second part, it discusses three systematic aspects of these relations. First, following Kuyper, it defines the term ‘church’ more accurately. Second, it offers insights into liturgical research in order to help to sharpen the places where and means by which the implicit shaping of individual ethical behaviour in the church takes place, as exemplified in the work of Dirk Smit. Third, it discusses the task of pastors as mediators between church and theology.

Biblische Perspektiven in Krisen und Ängsten unserer Zeit. Band 1
Der Band analysiert, reflektiert und bearbeitet im Gespräch mit biblischen Texten gegenwärtige gesellschaftliche Konflikte und Problemlagen. Der erste von zwei Bänden thematisiert aktuelle gesellschaftliche Gefährdungen und Tendenzen wachsender Diskriminierung und Gewalt.
Theolog:innen verschiedener theologischer Fachgebiete erarbeiten Zuversichtsargumente auf Basis der Interpretation biblischer Texte, Denkweisen, Haltungen und Überzeugungen, die argumentativen Erschließungscharakter in Diskursen und Problemlagen der Gegenwart entfalten. Die Zuversichtsargumente zeigen biblische Perspektiven auf, die angesichts nachvollziehbarer Gefühle von Ohnmacht, Hoffnungslosigkeit, Angst und Verzweiflung, aber auch angesichts von Tendenzen grassierender Irrationalismen, Radikalisierung und Gesprächsverweigerung Kontrapunkte ins Spiel bringen, weil biblisches Denken die Möglichkeit eines Umdenkens (metánoia) und damit Perspektiven für produktive und heilsame Veränderungen eröffnet.
