Eine Theologie des Martyriums

Unser Wohlstand hat auch unsere christlichen Vorstellungen geprägt. Wir brauchen dringend eine erneuerte Perspektive – so wie sie Christen in weniger begüterten Erdteilen haben:

The decade old call by Christians, particularly in the Global south, for a ‘theology of the pathway of the cross’, needs to be heeded on a global level. Such a theology has the potential to counterbalance an evangelical tendency towards triumphalism and to complement the views of other theological traditions.
