Ethical aspects of 1–2 Peter

Contributor

This article engages in an ethical analysis of 1-2Peter. In these epistles the Christians of Asia Minor receive relevant and actualized ethical message.

Jürgen Moltmann unfolds the creative dialogue of theology and natural sciences along the subjects of creation and evolution.

Contributor

Eduard Böhl (1836–1903), a scholar of the second half of the nineteenth century, was professor of dogmatics at the Protestant Theological Faculty in Vienna for 35 years. His lifework was his “Dogmatics”, which he wrote for 23 years.

This study analyses Böhl’s teaching based on the last major chapter of his book, concerned with the “End of Times”.
