Henry Sturcke | 405 comments The four editions of the book linked above are English translations (by Margaret Kohl) of this German original: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

Should they be combined and so indicated?

BTW, there is currently no cover image for the German edition, I have uploaded a photo of my copy to my profile.

In addition, there is currently no text for the German edition. I have transcribed this, from the back cover of the book: Was heißt es heute, sich zum Glauben der Christen zu bekennen? Was bedeutet das Apostolische Glaubensbekenntnis, das viele Christen auch heute noch Sonntag für Sonntag im Gottesdienst sprechen, für unser Wirklichkeitsverständnis? Wolfhart Pannenberg gibt in seiner Auslegung die sachlichen Informationen über den ursprünglichen Sinn der Formulierungen, über ihr Verhältnis zu den Aussagen der kritischen Bibelwissenschaft und über die Bedeutung der Glaubensinhalte des Bekenntnisses für das Weltverständnis und die Probleme des modernen Menschen. Das Buch füllt eine von vielen denkenden Christen aller Konfessionen empfundene Lücke. Dem kritischen Nichtchristen vermittelt die in allgemein-verständlicher Sprache abgefaßste Auslegung interessante Denkanstöße.

Henry Sturcke | 405 comments Thanks, Lethe. Re publisher: The original was Siebenstern Taschenbuch Verlag, 1972. It had 185 pp. I have a copy of the 6th ed., 1995. It has 186 pp. and was published by Gütersloher-Verlags-Haus as Gütersloher Taschenbuch 1292.


Henry Sturcke | 405 comments As for the photo: this is the first time I've tried to upload one since my profile was changed to GR Author (ta da!). The photo thing seems to have become more complicated.

I just searched for the book on amazon.de, though, and they have a picture of the same cover as mine (of course, mine has higher resolution :-))

Congrats! :)

Found the photo, a link to 'all of Henry's photos' is hidden underneath 'Henry's Recent Updates'. Hmmm. It used to be a lot more visible, in the top left-hand corner, underneath the author photo/avatar.
