Can you imagine that in the United States or in Europe a young, scientifically, highly educated high school graduate had never heard anything about church or religion? Probably, you cant. But nevertheless, it has happened.----In recent decades, we have seen the dramatic growth of scientific knowledge that confronts traditional faith with facts. These facts seem to threaten the underlying truth of these age-old dogmas. Many young people acknowledge the problem: modern knowledge is contrary to the ancient dogmas of faith.----Doubts about the credibility of traditional beliefs and religious ceremonies arise. The consequence is the absence from the Sunday worship services and, ultimately, withdrawal from the churches. Many church municipalities suffer already from financial difficulties. The Christian churches react to this negative development slowly, and do not meet the core of the problem. Young ministers realize the contradictions between faith and knowledge. How are they to preach the gospel to their municipalities convincingly in these times?----This book presents discussions between a young, open minded and highly educated young man, and an elderly minister. In the beginning, progress and tradition cannot find each other. That the responsible bishop stands on the reformers side is a happy coincidence. Under guidance of this modern thinking bishop, the two create an up-to-date Christian theology. The female housekeeper of the minister is impressed by the talented young man. A love affair arises. Along the way, there are many serious challenges to overcome. In the end, hope triumphs.
