Karl Heim (1874-1958) pragte als Theologe an den Universitaten Halle, Munster und seit 1920 in Tubingen sowin von 1920 bis 1948 als Fruhprediger ander Tubinger Stiftskirche Generationnen von Pfarrern. Unter Seinen Zuhorern befanden sich auch viele Nicht-Theologen, denn Karl Heim konnte einerseits komplizierte naturwissenschaftliche Sachverhalte erstaunlich einfach und doch zutreffend elementarisieren und andererseits den christlichen Glauben mit diesen Ergebnissen in einen fruchtbaren Dialog bringen, Der 23. Jahrgang dieses Jahrbuches konzentriert sich auf das Verhaltnis von Evolution und Schopfung einerseits sowie auf medizin- und gesellschaftsethisch relevante Problemstellungen andererseits. Auch mit diesem Jahrbuch wird die bleibende Bedeutung der Theologie Karl Heims fur eine dialogfahige Theologie im 21 Jahrhundert deutlich. Volume 23 of the Yearbook of the German Karl Heim Society presents a variety of articles. Most of them are devoted to the relationship between evolution and creation, and the remainder elucidates bioethical aspects. The authors want to show the enduring significance of Karl Heim's insistence on a dialogue between theology and the natural sciences, and to further the intention of the Karl Heim Society to present a biblical Christian orientation in a world shaped by technology and the natural sciences. Though the contributions are in German, an extensive summary in English is appended to each of them.

Creation and Evolution

Foreword by Cardinal Christoph Schönborn In 2005 the Archbishop of Vienna, Christoph Cardinal Schönborn wrote a guest editorial in The New York Times that sparked a worldwide debate about "Creation and Evolution". Pope Benedict XVI instructed the Cardinal to study more closely this problem and the current debate between "evolutionism" and "creationism," and asked the yearly gathering of his former students to address these questions. Even after Joseph Ratzinger became Pope Benedict XVI, he has continued to maintain close contact with the circle of his former students. The "study circle" (Schulerkrers) meets once a year with Pope Benedict XVI for a conference. Many of these former Ratzinger students have gone on to become acclaimed scholars, professors and writers, as well as high ranking Church prelates. This book documents the proceedings of the remarkable conference on the topic of "Creation and Evolution" hosted by Pope Benedict XVI in 2006 at the papal summer residence, Castel Gandolfo. It includes papers that were presented from the fields of natural science, philosophy and theology, and records the subsequent discussion, in which Pope Benedict XVI himself participated. "Ultimately it comes down to the alternative: What came first? Creative Reason, the Creator Spirit who makes all things and gives them growth, or Unreason, which, lacking any meaning, strangely enough brings forth a mathematically ordered cosmos, as well as man and his reason. The latter, however, would then be nothing more than a chance result of evolution and thus, in the end, equally meaningless. As Christians, we say: I believe in God the Father, the Creator of heaven and earth. I believe in the Creator Spirit. We believe that at the beginning of everything is the eternal Word, with Reason and not Unreason." — Pope Benedict XVI

Rechtfertigung in der neuzeitlichen Lebenswelt

In der Reformation wurde der Rechtfertigungsartikel als die alles entscheidende Leitperspektive von Glaube, Kirche und Theologie betrachtet. Heute werden an dieser Stelle erhebliche Verstehensschwierigkeiten vermutet. Michael Beintker widerspricht der verbreiteten Ratlosigkeit gegenüber einer situationstransparenten Auslegung der Rechtfertigungsbotschaft. Er zeigt anhand ausgewählter Themenfelder, daß es in der Lebenswelt der Menschen keinen Bereich gibt, der rechtfertigungstheologisch uninteressant ist. Er untersucht unter anderem die Beziehungen zwischen der Rechtfertigungsbotschaft und der neuzeitlichen Wahrnehmung von Schuld, dem Freiheitsverständnis, dem Streben nach Selbstverwirklichung und Sinn und der Frage nach Gerechtigkeit. Außerdem fragt er nach den Konsequenzen für Zeugnis und Dienst der Kirche.
