Download e-book for iPad: Das authentische Leben oder die verzweifelte Suche nach dem by Horst Gerlach

By Horst Gerlach

Die postmodernen Philosophien haben einen irrationalen, integralen Menschen hervorgebracht, der holistisch denkt aus der Einheit mit dem Tod. So entstand ein integrativer Mensch von Geist und Natur, in dem intestine und Böse, Leben und Tod miteinander vereinigt und „versöhnt" wurden. Dadurch leben unter uns
immer mehr seelisch zerrüttete Menschen. Hilfe kann nur geleistet werden, wenn solche Menschen sich
von der Vermischung, das heißt von dieser „Versöhnung durch Vereinigung" bewusst trennen. Sodann wird es möglich sein, in die ursprüngliche Lebenswirklichkeit einer echten authentischen Identität zurück zu finden. Der gelebte Glaube an den Erlöser Jesus Christus gewinnt dabei eine grundlegende befreiende Bedeutung. Jesus Christus, Joh. 6,37: „Wer zu mir kommt, den werde ich nicht hinausstoßen."

By George Steiner,María Condor

A lo largo de toda su obra, George Steiner se ha interrogado sobre l. a. poética de l. a. traducción y sobre el sentido de los angeles lectura, lo que él llama su «responsabilidad». En Un prefacio a los angeles Biblia hebrea, es decir, al Antiguo Testamento de los cristianos, aborda el texto fundador de nuestra cultura y sus diversas traducciones. Tomando como punto de partida l. a. versión «rey Jaime» (1611), que fue el verdadero crisol de los angeles lengua inglesa, como los angeles Biblia de Lutero lo fue de l. a. lengua alemana, Steiner nos ofrece un análisis conciso pero contundente de lo que está en juego en l. a. traducción. Interrogando al texto bíblico a los angeles luz de l. a. historia moderna, se revela como un virtuoso en su indagación del libro que «más preguntas hace al hombre», un libro que ha configurado nuestra concepción misma de lo divino, de l. a. creación, de los angeles inspiración, pero también de los angeles literatura, desde Shakespeare hasta Moby Dick. George Steiner nos recuerda, en fin, hasta qué punto toda lectura de los angeles Biblia sigue siendo una aventura arriesgada. Por esta razón, el presente prefacio, que constituye uno de los textos más personales del autor, es asimismo una meditación sobre los angeles trascendencia y sobre el sentido mismo de l. a. escritura, ya sea de Dios, ya del hombre.
