Download PDF by Tilman Hachfeld: Psalmenpredigten (German Edition)

By Tilman Hachfeld

ISBN-10: 3743180782

ISBN-13: 9783743180789

Dass die biblischen Psalmen, das Gesang- und Gebetbuch Israels, von Anfang an auch im christlichen Gottesdienst ihren Ort hatten und haben, ist kaum umstritten. In der Reformationszeit fanden sie in Martin Luther und besonders Johannes Calvin engagierte Ausleger. Calvin, der sonst nur über neutestamentliche Perikopen predigte, predigte fortlaufend über alle a hundred and fifty Psalmen, die er zudem in seinen Vorlesungen gründlich interpretierte.
Trotz dieser reformatorischen Wertschätzung gingen die Psalmen aus den vorgeschlagenen Predigttexten der Perikopenordnung der lutherischen Kirchen verloren. Erst in der anstehenden Revision kommen eleven von ihnen, verteilt auf vier Predigtreihen, wieder vor.
Dieser Band mit Predigten soll der Erbauung der Gemeinde und der Ermutigung von Predigern dienen, alternativ zu den üblichen Perikopen vermehrt über Psalmen zu predigen, im Bewusstsein, dass sie das ungeteilte Erbe Israels bleiben, Christen aber hoffen dürfen, durch den Sohn Israels, Jesus von Nazareth, daran Anteil zu bekommen.

By Lydia Kossatz

ISBN-13: 9783110500509

Diese Studie bezieht das ästhetische Paradigma, unter dem die Praktische Theologie zur Wahrnehmungswissenschaft wird, auf die Seelsorgelehre. Im Rückgriff auf Martin Luthers Formel "per mutuum colloquium et consolationem fratrum" wird das poimenische Feld bestimmt und der theologische Rahmen der Untersuchung abgesteckt: Christliche Seelsorge ist zu beschreiben als wechselseitiges Gespräch anwesender Glaubensgeschwister zum Zwecke des Trosts untereinander. Diese Bestimmung holt die Untersuchung im Rekurs auf die Systemtheorie Niklas Luhmanns sowie der Semiotik Umberto Ecos kommunikationstheoretisch ein, indem sie aus einer im weitesten Sinne konstruktivistischen Perspektive Seelsorge als religiös codierte Kommunikation unter Anwesenden beschreibt. In praktischer Hinsicht ist das vieldimensionale Kommunikationsgeschehen der Seelsorge anhand der fundamentalpoimenischen Kategorien Kommunikationsmedium, Zeit, Raum und Leib aufgeordnet. Mit diesem Ansatz bietet die Studie der Poimenik einen einheitlichen Theoriehorizont, der die vieldimensionalen Prozesse des seelsorglichen Kommunikationsgeschehens präzise fasst.
