Theology and religious studies co-exist in the majority of departments in higher education institutions within the UK, yet there has been very little debate or discussion on how these two disciplines relate to one another in this context and on a more general level. This new collection of essays aims to redress the balance and to add to fruitful discussion in this area Including essays by some of today's leading academics on the sometimes contentious relationship between religious studies - or the study of religions - and theology, this volume is international in scope, with contributions from scholars from the UK, USA, South Africa, Netherlands, Sweden and Iran. Many of the essays offer a contextualised account of the evolving relationship between the disciplines. The contributors address such issues as the place of theology within today's universities; the problem of clashing methodologies in theology and religious studies; the possibility for a 'theological religious studies'; approaching the study of religions without theology; interdisciplinary approaches for bridging the theology/religious studies divide; and the place of biblical studies in the theology/religious studies debate.

Wie kann und soll vom Bosen gesprochen werden? Die gegenwartig vielfaltig konstatierte Sprachnot in der Rede vom Bosen betrifft nicht nur ihren Inhalt, sondern auch ihren Redemodus. Kurz nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg verfasst Karl Barth im Rahmen seiner Kirchlichen Dogmatik einen Paragraphen, den er mit Gott und das Nichtige uberschreibt. Barth nimmt sich darin in ausserst pointierter und bedenkenswerter Weise jener Sprachnot in der Rede vom Bosen an. Er transformiert dabei an wesentlichen Punkten theologische und philosophische Denktraditionen in der Rede vom Bosen. Die vorliegende Untersuchung nimmt diesen Paragraphen zum Ausgangspunkt einer grundlichen Analyse von Barths Rede vom Nichtigen. Verhandelt werden u. a. Genese, Phanomengehalt, Funktion und Redemodus der Rede vom Nichtigen. Die Untersuchung schliesst mit dem Versuch einer kritischen Weiterfuhrung von Barths Rede vom Nichtigen mittels einer systematisch-theologischen Besinnung auf Inhalt und Redemodus der Klage. Matthias Dominique Wuthrich, Dr. theol., VDM, 1972, ist Beauftragter fur Theologie am Institut fur Theologie und Ethik des Schweizerischen Evangelischen Kirchenbundes.

The author presents an introduction to Systematic Theology which illustrates the essential relationship between dogmatics and ethics. This relationship is based on the idea that religion and human behavior correlate internally. The aim is to describe Christian existence as a way of living in responsibility before God and with commitment to the common good of society, which provides the necessary external frame of the church as a religious community and its existence in love and hope.
