„Er erquicket meine Seele“

Predigten im Kontext von Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie

[“He restores my soul” – Sermons in the context of psychiatry and psychotherapy]

Osnabrück (Rasch) 2000, 114 pp.

A psychic illness has any number of consequences, not the least for the patient’s religious life and the questions this involves. The sermons collected in this volume were preached by the author in a psychiatric hospital. They do not call on piety, morals, or the will to recover. Rather, they proclaim God’s Yes to everyman, without any precondition.
At the same time the author thus gives an example to illustrate the specific con­tribution of a Christian message in a context of very diverse therapeutic approaches.
