God's human face : the Christ-icon by Christoph von Schönborn( Book )

18 editions published between 1976 and 1999 in 5 languages and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book by Bishop Christoph Schonborn, the principal editor of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, is about the human face of God. Artists and theologians have meditated upon the mystery of God's human countenance and tried to express it. This book seeks to present the great sources of this meditation--sources which today are widely unknown, or have become foreign or obscure. These sources are above all the great masters of early Christianity. In their meditation upon Christ, Bishop Schonborn seeks the sources of the art on the Icon. The reader will find not only an engaging introduction to the meaning and beauty of Icons, but an invitation to draw closer to the One who inspired these Masters of theological expression and holy art. Includes beautiful color Icon illustrations.--taken from Amazon®.com

Creation and evolution : a conference with Pope Benedict XVI in Castel Gandolfo( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 2005 the Archbishop of Vienna, Christoph Cardinal Schönborn wrote a guest editorial in The New York Times that sparked a worldwide debate about 'Creation and Evolution.' Pope Benedict XVI instructed the Cardinal to study more closely this problem and the current debate between 'evolutionism' and 'creationism, ' and asked the yearly gathering of his former students to address these questions. Even after Joseph Ratzinger became Pope Benedict XVI, he has continued to maintain close contact with the circle of his former students. The 'study circle' (Schülerkreis) meets once a year with Pope Benedict XVI for a conference. Many of these former Ratzinger students have gone on to become acclaimed scholars, professors and writers, as well as high ranking Church prelates. This book documents the proceedings of the remarkable conference on the topic of 'Creation and Evolution' hosted by Pope Benedict XVI in 2006 at the papal summer residence, Castel Gandolfo. It includes papers that were presented from the fields of natural science, philosophy and theology, and records the subsequent discussion, in which Pope Benedict XVI himself participated."--

6 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and French and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vatican II's Declaration on the Relation of the Church to Non-Christian Religions (Nostra Aetate) transformed the Catholic view of the Jewish people and the Jewish religious tradition. Asserting that the Church discovers her link to the ""stock of Abraham"" when ""searching her own mystery, "" Nostra Aetate intimated that the mystery of Israel is inseparable from the mystery of the Church. As interlocking mysteries, each community requires the other in order to understand itself. In Searching Her Own Mystery, noted Messianic Jewish theologian Mark S. Kinzer argues that the Church has yet to exp

Happiness, God, and man by Christoph von Schönborn( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"All human beings want to be happy. The longing for happiness does not have to be learned, it is innate. And it can hardly be unlearned. For we never simply acquiesce in unhappiness. Christian faith, the Christian way of life, and the imitation of Christ are understood to be signposts pointing the way to happiness. Upon this depends their credibility and their attractiveness. The highly regarded teacher, writer and pastoral churchman, Cardinal Schonborn, talks about man's happiness, small and great, about happiness as it is supposed to be and as it is discovered. He explains what it means to say that all human beings are created for happiness. His insightful writings are centered on meditations about happiness and also about the deeper meaning of love and friendship. Yet the Archbishop of Vienna also discusses the essential questions of faith, including reflections on the Name of God as seen in Scripture, on dealing with the tragedies of modern times, consolation for the sorrowful and on the spiritual roots of western civilization. In addition he discusses the importance of literature, and how it addresses the deeper questions about life, as demonstrated in his literary discussions of the works by C.S. Lewis, Gertrud von Le Fort and William Shakespeare. He shows how their works give witness to a happiness that overcomes all darkness through suffering, trials and especially forgiveness."--Publisher's description

Hat die Evolution Sinn und Ziel? In diesem Buch erläutert der Wiener Erzbischof den wesentlichen Unterschied des katholischen Schöpfungsglaubens zu fundamentalistischen Missverständnissen der biblischen Erzählungen. Zugleich wendet er sich aber gegen die Tendenz, die Evolutionstheorie Darwins zu einer Weltanschauung des "Evolutionismus" zu überhöhen, die dem Glauben an eine sinnvolle Schöpfung sein Daseinsrecht bestreitet
