Theology and Science – are not these opposites?

Introduction by Andreas Losch

To begin with, the common belief that theology and science are contradictory to each other, like fire and water, is a myth.

The Gift: Giving among People and other Animals

Editorial by Alexander Massmann

In spite of stagnant wages, in recent years British consumers have increased their average monthly spending by about a quarter for Christmas, and German shoppers are expected to cross the 100 billion Euros mark in the 2019 Christmas season. Children are delighted about little treats, and families and friends prepare for being a “secret Santa.” It may seem that the tail is wagging with the dog – shopping and gift-giving defines Christmas, rather than the other way around. From a Christian perspective, however, it is not surprising that we give gifts for Christmas.
