Die Freude des Christen 
Walter Kardinal Kasper
The Christian`s Joy

What does »a closed heart« mean in an age of the enraged citizen? What does »friendship« mean in an age of Facebook? In his new book, Walter Kasper presents nothing less than a description of the Christian`s existence in the world of today – under the heading of joy. Some will be astonished to learn that »sadness« and a »closed heart« are considered the greatest temptation and gravest sin in the spiritual tradition. Kasper counters this tendency with joy, which is the fruit of the conversion and a gift of mercy according to the Biblical message.

Francis as the Pope and a Politician

Pope Francis cultivates not only a new style of executing his official duties, but also sets unaccustomed focal points. For him, the church doesn`t stand outside of the world but is a part of it – in both the good and the bad sense. His concern is that no one is excluded from the church or society. Everyone should be able to live a humane life in freedom and security.

Ich träume von einer Kirche als Mutter und Hirtin 
Paul M. Zulehner
»I Dream of a Church That Is a Mother and a Shepherdess«
The New Pastoral Culture by Pope Francis

In just a few years, Pope Francis has profoundly changed the pastoral culture of the Catholic Church. Under the great sign of mercy, the Church should follow the Saviour as the saviour of the people. Or, as the Pope said: a field hospital to heal the wounds of the human beings and humanity. The accents shift: from the sin to the wound, from in the courtroom to the hospice, from moralising to healing, from the law to the face, from the ideologue to the shepherd.

Ich bin eine Mission 
George Augustin
I Am a Mission
Steps of Evangelization

The path of being a Christian is not retreating from the world but co-creating the world in the power of the Gospel. »I am a mission on this earth; this is the reason why I am here in this world… bringing light, blessing, enlivening, raising up, healing and freeing.« (Pope Francis) Starting with his Apostolic Exhortation »Evangelii Gaudium«, Francis has always given new impetus on bringing the proclamation of the Gospel into our contemporary society. How has our world changed?

Intrigen, Sex und Totschlag in der Bibel 
Josef Imbach
Intrigues, Sex and Homicide in the Bible

Crime scene bible: who leafs through the bible is not only encountering doubters and God-seekers but also intriguers and murderers, adulterers and imposters. All of them enact a Comédie humaine on a universal and bizarre world stage in which even deeply religious Christians can hardly make out signs of sacred history. Although the bible is constantly talking about God, nothing human is foreign. Insights into the most suspenseful side of the Bible.

Unity of Christians as a spiritual process
With a preface by Walter Cardinal Kasper

The unity of Christians will not be the result of administrative measures nor theological agreement on the smallest common denominator. The unity of Christians is instead grounded in a personal relationship to Jesus Christ and is a gift from the Holy Spirit, one that minds and hearts must be open to.
