Original title / Originaltitel Neues Leben. Eine systematisch-theologische Untersuchung in Anknüpfung an einen soteriologischen Grundgedanken paulinischer Theologie.
Summary / Zusammenfassung This doctoral project deals with the idea of "newness" as it is expressed in metaphors like "new life", "new birth", "new man" or "new creation" in the New Testament — particularly in Paul, the deuteropauline literature and John. The main purpose is a critical analysis of how this idea was received and adapted by various strands of the Protestant tradition and of how — indeed, wether — it could and should be conceptualised and expressed in today's theology.
