Christian Lives Given to the Study of Islam

Felix Körner

Fordham University Press

Through the stimulation of home-life and schooling, challenging encounters and friendships, and a desire to centre his life on his Christian faith and commitment, the German Jesuit, Körner, was prepared for a life of theological encounter. Hebrew studies led to Arabic, which, augmented by philosophical and biblical study, brought him to the study of Islam. The importance of inspiring teachers, scholars and fellow-students led to a meeting with Josef van Ess from Tübingen, and thus ultimately to Bamberg and Ankara. The chapter details the contribution of ecumenical Christian theological reading, in this case Pannenberg, efforts at teaching in Turkey, the need for a solid Christian theology of religions to underpin the encounter with Islam, and the demand for a theology of witness.
