Coverabbildung von "Jesus in schlechter Gesellschaft"

Adolf Holl Walter Famler (Edited by) Harald Klauhs (Edited by) - Jesus in schlechter Gesellschaft

Vor fünfzig Jahren erschien Adolf Holls Bestseller „Jesus in schlechter Gesellschaft“. Das Buch zeigt Jesus als Außenseiter, sanften Revolutionär und Sozialreformer, der Dogmen infrage und seine Moralvorstellungen gegen rigide Machtstrukturen stellt. Vielfach übersetzt stieß Holls Jesus auf heftige Ablehnung und kultische Zustimmung weit über katholische Kreise hinaus und liefert bis heute kritische Impulse. Mit einer persönlichen Einleitung der Herausgeber und einem Nachwort von Horst Junginger ist Holls Klassiker jetzt in einer Jubiläumsausgabe erhältlich, die gleichzeitig den Auftakt einer zwölfbändigen Werkausgabe darstellt.

Harald Klauhs - Holl

An account of a rebellious life

Adolf Holl has many professions: priest, scholar, prophet, heretic, writer, provocateur and eroticist. Born in Vienna in 1930 and ordained to priesthood in 1954, his international best-seller “Jesus in Bad Company” (1971, originally published in German as “Jesus in schlechter Gesellschaft”) brought him into conflict with the Catholic Church. As a result, his licence to teach was withdrawn and he was suspended from his priestly duties. His quick-witted questioning earned him rebuke from church authorities, but also great prominence. Harald Klauhs, a highly knowledgeable authority on Holl’s work, has now written a biography of this wayward thinker. Holl’s life as a tour de force through western intellectual history is at the same time a description of the Second Austrian Republic.
