Die Agape als fundamentalontologische Kategorie
2006, 505 S, Gb, (Gruyter)
The author presents a study on the ontological historical development of the central Christian message of God’s love. Working from the concept of “Agape”, the reality of the Church is discovered in its tension between the wholeness of being and the crisis of being. By fully developing the possibilities offered by agape, the author resuscitates the vision of the alternative Christian way of being. As His willingness for reconciliation, God’s love offers ecumenism in particular a promising way forwards and shows how Christianity can discover a new credibility and future confidence.
