Second hand bookshop emptying
I had a dream about visiting a book shop last night (it’s not the first time), and in my dream I found a three volume set containing all of Jüngel’s works. Excited, I turned to my partner, Garry Kasparov, but to my disappointment he didn’t encourage me to buy them as only three volumes were there – maybe there were more in the complete set.
Now I know as well as perhaps you do, there is no such thing as a three volume Complete Works of Jüngel’s publications (if only), but today I found myself in Tübingen looking through a couple of second hand book shops, and what did I find ...
... the superb four volume set of Jüngel’s sermons, all half price!
However, each book was still €9, and I knew that the old “I’ve been having prophetic dreams about buying these, darling” line wouldn’t be the easiest to pull off, so I left them on the shelf. (Had I purchased them, my preferred dream interpretation was something like: “Kasparov was Beelzebub stopping me in my heavenly mission to buy the Jüngel sermon books, darling”). Speaking of Jüngel, you may want to see this.
However, I did buy a number of other books:
By Jürgen Moltmann (which I got really cheap) and which I’m terribly excited about:
- Kirche in der Kraft des Geistes: ein Beitrag zur messianischen Ekklesiologie, (München: Kaiser, 1975)
- Der Weg Jesu Christi: Christologie in messianischen Dimensionen, (München: Kaiser, 1989)
- Erfahrungen theologischen Denkens : Wege und Formen christlicher Theologie, (Gütersloh : Kaiser, Gütersloher Verlagshaus, 1999)
- Wegzeichen in die Zukunft: Programmatisches für eine christlichere Kirche, (Reinbek bei Hamburg: Rowohlt, 1980)
- 20 Thesen zum Christsein, (München : Piper, 1975)
