Our Concern

This homepage focuses on the term “People of God”: the history and identity of this people and their experiences as handed down through Scripture and Church tradition.

Central to this is the knowledge of the enduring Jewish character of the Church and its original form of life – community.
The theology of the People of God understands itself as “emperical science” (C. S. Lewis): it emerges from the life of believers and aims at a renewal of the People of God. Within the horizon of the modern world view, this theology combines reason and faith, working to achieve a synthesis of the various theological disciplines.

News presents texts that take up an issue currently under discussion or takes biblical texts of the liturgy as its starting point. You can access earlier contributions in this category in the menu bar under “News”.

Theology Forum presents fundamental contributions as well as texts by guest authors which have caught our attention and take a stand on society and ecclesiastical issues. Interpretations of art works (paintings, sculpture, and architecture) are published here on a regular basis. The archive of these contributions is available in the menu bar under “Theology Forum”.

Info Service keeps you up to date about new articles on the theology of the People of God in this website.

Publishings on the theology of the People of God can be found under the menu item “Publications“.
