Asking Questions, Finding Answers

Communication Research: Asking Questions, Finding Answers covers basic research issues and processes, both quantitative and qualitative, appropriate for communication students with little or no previous research methods experience. The text's guiding principle is that methodological choices are made from one's research questions or hypotheses. This avoids the pitfall in which students learn one methodology or one methodological skill and then force that method to answer all types of questions. Instead of working with one methodology to answer all types of questions, students come away understanding a variety of methods and how to apply them appropriately.

Religion, Religionlessness and Contemporary Western Culture

Explorations in Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Theology

Author: Stephen Plant,Ralf K. Wüstenberg

Publisher: Peter Lang

ISBN: 9783631577547

Category: Language Arts & Disciplines

Page: 130

View: 5766

This first volume of the new series "International Bonhoeffer Interpretations" "(IBI)" contains several impulses for translating Bonhoeffer's key ideas on Religion, Religionlessness and the Church into current contexts. These impulses vary from prospects for a Christian university looking at Bonhoeffer's distinction between the 'ultimate and the penultimate things' to an ethical understanding of Bonhoeffer's 'as-if-theology' in the light of Luther's distinction between law and gospel; from a fresh perspective on Bonhoeffer's religionless Christianity in the light of his thought on 'oikumene' to a Christological re-interpretation of repentance as the contribution of religionless Christianity to the task of the Church in the United States of America. The impulses are framed by programmatic contributions suggesting a framework for reading Bonhoeffer in the 21st century in his hermeneutic exploration of Bonhoeffer's theology and the crises of Western culture, and analyzing 'religionless Christianity' in a complexly religious and secular world.
