Lebensbejahend predigen

[= Life-affirming preaching]

Münster (LIT) 2008, 164 pp., series: „Homiletische Perspektiven“ Bd. 7

This book comprises three studies in which the author focusses on sermons with one particular question in mind: to what extent do they proclaim God’s unconditional Yes? This affirmation is then unfolded as “the justification of the doubter” (Tillich), as the divine Yes to a preacher’s concrete yearnings for a fulfilled life of his own, and as a Yes to sexuality as a gift of the Creator.
