Martin Luther : renegade and prophet by Lyndal Roper( Book )

2 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in German and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On October 31, 1517, so the story goes, a shy monk named Martin Luther nailed a piece of paper to the door of the Castle Church in the university town of Wittenberg. The ideas contained in these Ninety-five Theses, which boldly challenged the Catholic Church, spread like wildfire. Within two months, they were known all over Germany. So powerful were Martin Luther's broadsides against papal authority that they polarized a continent and tore apart the very foundation of Western Christendom. But who was the man behind the Ninety-five Theses? Lyndal Roper's biography goes beyond Luther's theology to investigate the inner life of the religious reformer who has been called "the last medieval man and the first modern one." Here is a portrait of a revolutionary thinker who was, at his core, deeply flawed and full of contradictions. Luther was a brilliant writer whose biblical translations had a lasting impact on the German language. Yet he was also a strident fundamentalist whose scathing rhetorical attacks threatened to alienate those he might persuade. He had a colorful, even impish personality, and when he left the monastery to get married ("to spite the Devil," he explained), he wooed and wed an ex-nun. But he had an ugly side too. When German peasants rose up against the nobility, Luther urged the aristocracy to slaughter them. He was a ferocious anti-Semite and a virulent misogynist, even as he argued for liberated human sexuality within marriage. By bringing us closer than ever to the man himself, Roper opens up a new vision of the Reformation and the world it created and draws a fully three-dimensional portrait of its founder
Kompass : Roman by Mathias Énard( Book )

6 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in German and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kompass" ist das Buch der Stunde: eine leidenschaftliche Beschwörung der jahrhundertelangen Passion des Westens für die orientalische Kultur. Unter dem Schock einer alarmierenden medizinischen Diagnose verbringt Franz Ritter, Musikwissenschaftler in Wien, eine schlaflose Nacht. Er begibt sich im Geiste noch einmal an die Orte seiner Forschungsreisen: Istanbul, Damaskus, Aleppo, Palmyra - alles Städte, die für ihn untrennbar mit Sarah verbunden sind, der berühmten Orientalistin, seiner großen Liebe. Seine Erinnerung zaubert immer mehr Fakten, Romanzen und Geschichten hervor, die alle von dem entscheidenden Beitrag des Orients zur westlichen Kultur und Identität zeugen. Für diesen Roman erhielt Mathias Enard in Frankreich 2015 den Prix Goncourt. (Quelle: www.buchhandel.de)

Die Lichter von Pointe-Noire by Alain Mabanckou( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Im Juni 2012 reist Alain Mabanckou zum ersten Mal seit dreiundzwanzig Jahren in den Kongo. In seiner Heimatstadt Pointe-Noire wird er begeistert empfangen, schließlich ist aus dem jungen Mann, der einst zum Studieren nach Frankreich ging, ein erfolgreicher Schriftsteller geworden. Seine weitläufige Verwandtschaft weiß, dass er manchmal im Fernsehen auftritt, dass er in der Nähe von Hollywood lebt und viele Weiße seine Bücher lesen. Doch Alain Mabanckou muss erkennen, dass sein Besuch in der Heimat keine Rückkehr nach Hause ist. Überall hat er das Bild seiner Mutter vor Augen, die alt geworden und gestorben ist, während er fern von ihr in einem fremden Land lebte. Und so wird aus seinen Streifzügen durch die Stadt eine Reise in die eigene Kindheit. Denn er erinnert sich an den Rat, den seine Mutter ihm mit auf den Weg gegeben hat, als die beiden sich zum letzten Mal begegneten: Heißes Wasser vergisst nie, dass es einmal kalt war. Eine literarische Spurensuche zwischen Vergangenheit und Gegenwart: Alain Mabanckou zeichnet in »Die Lichter von Pointe-Noire« das humorvolle, aber auch berührende Porträt einer Frau, die unbeugsam allen Widrigkeiten des Schicksals trotzt. Und er erzählt eine Geschichte über das Fremdsein, das dort am stärksten sein kann, wo man es am wenigsten erwartet

Pourquoi les hommes se disputent-ils à propos de Dieu? by Michaël Foessel( )

1 edition published in 2009 in German and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

HauptbeschreibungOb es Gott gibt oder nicht? wir werden es nie beweisen können. Dennoch ist für viele Menschen die Überzeugung, dem einzig wahren Glauben zu folgen, so wichtig, dass sie ihm alles andere unterordnen. Sie dulden keinen anderen Glauben daneben und sind sogar bereit, für ihren Glauben zu kämpfen und zu sterben. Michaël Foessel spürt dem Bedürfnis des Menschen nach Glauben nach. Er erklärt, warum Gott für viele Menschen so wichtig ist, woher die Vorstellung eines einzigen Gottes stammt und wie sich die drei großen monotheistischen Religionen entwickelten und was geschieht, wenn Me

Whore by Nelly Arcan( Book )

2 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in German and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Product of a repressed Catholic upbringing, a troubled girl whose beauty was her ticket out of the backwater in which she was raised - Cynthia talks about cleaning up used condoms and the endless parade of johns: from wealthy and privileged father figures to Michael, an observant Jew dressed in black, whose visits lead Cynthia to reflect on Moses and biblical whores; or young, athletic Mathieu, who makes Cynthia realize that the wrinkles and faults of her other clients make her feel young. Disarmingly poetic, Whore is an engrossing and troubling look inside the mind of one woman who makes her living selling her body."--Jacket
Septembre : roman by Jean Mattern( Book )

""Cela fera bientôt onze ans que notre fille est morte, mais je crois qu'elle aurait aimé mon idée, qu'elle aurait été fière de moi. Cette pensée en a amené une autre, j'ai allumé mon ordinateur et j'ai su alors que je devais écrire le récit de ces journées au gré de ma mémoire, en oubliant la chronologie officielle. Pour honorer ces onze athlètes dont on n'ose même pas rappeler les noms publiquement par peur de gâcher la fête ; mais aussi pour ramener à la lumière un homme dont je n'ai jamais parlé à personne, un homme qui a disparu avec les onze cercueils aussi sûrement que s'il avait été tué lui aussi sur le tarmac de Fürstenfeldbruck. Cet homme s'appelait Sam Cole.""--Page 4 of cover
Memory by Philippe Grimbert( Book )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2017 in German and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The novel follows the Jewish family of Maxime & Tania Nathan during the years leading up to the 2nd world war, the Nazi occupation, and the post-war years where the 2nd born son Philippe learns of his parents tragic past in during WW2 France. -- A 2007 film was directed and written by Claude Miller. The screenplay was based on this 2004 novel. -- Psychoanalyst Philippe Grimbert, b. 1948, "has to re-imagine almost all of [the story] -- he wasn't there, and neither was his main source, [an old family friend] Louise ... As if his parents' story wasn't enough, there's more, a coda of sorts -- though Grimbert can barely go there. There's a second family tragedy, one that a grown Grimbert is much closer to, but he can't do much more than describe what happens in a brief paragraph, wondering what the last words his father had murmured into his mother's ears were, unable to bring himself to consider much more surrounding that act [of committing suicide]. ... Grimbert ... is perilously close to presenting a well-rounded course of psychotherapeutic sessions, brought to their conclusion, getting it all into the open, going through it, putting the pieces in place ... 'Un Secret' is a well-presented, deeply unsettling, and fascinating story."--(http://www.complete-review.com/reviews/modfr/grimbert.htm). -- "Twenty years after his mother and father jumped to their deaths from a balcony, Philippe Grimbert has written a gripping novel about the hidden memories that dominated their lives. / A colossal bestseller in Europe, [Un Secret]/Memory is the story of a family haunted by the secret of their past: an illicit love affair, a lost child, and a devastating betrayal dating back to the Second World War. / "The day after my fifteenth birthday, I finally learned what I had always known ..." / Growing up in postwar Paris as the sickly only child of glamorous athletic parents, the narrator invents for himself a make-believe older brother, stronger and more brilliant than he can ever be. It is only when the boy begins talking to an old family friend that he comes to realize that his imaginary sibling had a real predecessor: a half brother whose death in the concentration camps is part of a buried family secret that he was intended never to uncover."--(http://www.readinggroupguides.com/guides_M/memory1.asp). -- "At 15, a violent altercation with a schoolroom bully over a lesson on Holocaust victims results in the revelation of his origins: Grimbert, the narrator?s family?s name, was once Grinberg, and the story of his parents? romantic retreat to the country during the war is shattered by a heartbreaking story of betrayal and sacrifice in occupied France. For Grimbert, the aftermath of WWII forced survivors into prisons of their own memories and denial, bound together by an impossible grief." - (Editorial Review, Publishers Weekly vol. 254 iss. 45, p. 35 (c) 11/12/2007)
