In einer Phase von Selbstzweifeln und Depression gerät Emmanuel Carrère in eine Krise des Unglaubens. Er wendet sich dem Christentum zu und versucht, sich zum Glauben zu überzeugen. Nach einer Zeit der intensiven Auseinandersetzung mit den Ursprüngen des Christentums und dem Versuch, konsequent den christlichen Idealen zu folgen, gerät er in eine zweite Krise, eine Krise des Glaubens. In radikaler Ehrlichkeit stellt sich der vernunft- und psychoanalysegeprägte Pariser Intellektuelle der Gretchenfrage und der eigenen Tradition : Was bedeutet uns der Glaube, was uns persönlich und was unserer Gesellschaft ? Um dieser Frage auf den Grund zu gehen, vertieft er sich in die Anfänge des Christentums, er findet Identifikationsfiguren in Paulus, dem Revolutionär, Lukas, dem Intellektuellen und fragt nach der Kraft, mit der es ihnen gelang, etwas zu glauben, was niemand sonst glaubte und eine so machtvolle Tradition zu begründen. Er bringt diese überaus fesselnde frühe Geschichte des Christentums, voll politischer und gesellschaftlicher Unruhen und Intrigen, dem Leser so nahe, dass dieser unmittelbar herausgefordert wird, sein eigenes Verhältnis zur Tradition und zum Glauben zu hinterfragen. Carrère gelingt es in diesem einzigartigen und brisanten Buch, seine eigene Lebens- und Glaubensgeschichte mit der historischen Handlung zu verweben und den Leser mit den unendlichen Facetten des Glaubens und Nichtglaubens zu konfrontieren. Ob ablehnend oder bejahend : An den Fragen des Glaubens kommt heute niemand vorbei.

The issue of idolatry has been with the human race for thousands of years; the subtle temptation is always to take what is good and turn it into the ultimate good, elevating it above all other things in the search for security and meaning. In this timely and challenging book, New York pastor Timothy Keller looks at the issue of idolatry throughout the Bible -- from the worship of actual idols in the Old Testament, to the idolatry of money by the rich young ruler when he was challenged by Jesus to give up all his wealth. Using classic stories from the Bible Keller cuts through our dependence on the glittering false idols of money, sex and power to uncover the path towards trust in the real ultimate -- God. Today's idols may look different from those of the Old Testament, but Keller argues that they are no less damaging. Culturally transforming as well as biblically based, COUNTERFEIT GODS is a powerful look at the temptation to worship what can only disappoint, and is a vital message in today's current climate of financial and social difficulty.

It is commonly thought in secular society that the Bible is one of the greatest hindrances to doing justice. Isn't it full of regressive views? Didn't it condone slavery? Why look to the Bible for guidance on how to have a more just society? But Timothy Keller, pastor of New York City's Redeemer Presbyterian Church, sees it another way. In GENEROUS JUSTICE, Keller explores a life of justice empowered by an experience of grace: a generous, gracious justice. Here is a book for believers who find the Bible a trustworthy guide, as well as those who suspect that Christianity is a regressive influence in the world.Keller's church, founded in the 80s with fewer than 100 congregants, is now exponentially larger. Over 5,000 people regularly attend Sunday services, and another 25,000 download Keller's sermons each week. A recent profile in New York magazine described his typical sermon as 'a mix of biblical scholarship, pop culture, and whatever might have caught his eye in The New York Review of Books or on Salon.com that week.' In short, Timothy Keller speaks a language that many thousands of people understand. In GENEROUS JUSTICE, he offers them a new understanding of modern justice and human rights.
