Askese (ebook)

Faszination und Zumutung

Askese (ebook)

Askese ist weit mehr als die Sorge um sich selbst. Lassen, um zu erlangen, Maß finden im Überschwang der Liebe, sterben, um zu leben. Das ist das Paradox christlicher Askese und der Weg zu jener ursprünglichen Leidenschaft des Lebens, die – nach J.-L. Barrault – ohne Gier glühend ist. In Ordnung, Offenheit und Kampf gibt Askese dem Leben eine Richtung, die es aus sich selbst nicht finden kann.

Ndanda Abbey, Part I (ebook)

Beginning and Development up to 1932

Ndanda Abbey, Part I (ebook)

The cornerstone of Catholicism in southern Tanzania was laid by the Benedictine monks of Ndanda Abbey. This first volumn of the abbey’s history explains how the Missionary Benedictines came to establish the faith in southern Tanzania. Although threatened by wars and hindered time and again by human weaknesses, the small mission stations grew into widereaching territorial abbeys and centers of a lively Church in southern Tanzania. Their early struggles to establish the first Christian communities has blossomed into three dioceses: Mtwara, Lindi, and Tunduru-Masasi.  A bbot em. Siegfried Hertlein began his missionary carrier in Tanzania in 1962. From 1976 to 2001 he was the third abbot of the Missionary Benedictine Monastery of Ndanda. Since then he has been involved in monastic formation and research into the abbey’s history.

Buddhist Perceptions of Jesus (ebook)

Buddhist Perceptions of Jesus (ebook)

Buddhists have judged Christianity primarily from a spiritual-practical point of view. Thereby the three principles of the Noble Eightfold Path have proved decisive. In that regard it is very significant that negative judgements about Christianity always arose  over the question of vegetarianism and the consumption of alcohol which makes Buddhists believers doubt the spiritual level of Christianity. The collected articles and approaches of this volume present the difficulties of the Buddhist religion within the Christian-Buddhist Dialogue.
