Otto Kaiser presents the Tria Corda lectures on the three topics of destiny and freedom and divine providence as well as the beauty and harmony in the world and the problem of the existence of evil.
With this work, Otto Kaiser presents the Tria Corda lectures on the three topics of destiny and freedom and divine providence as well as the beauty and harmony in the world and the problem of the existence of evil. In doing so, he shows how the Jewish wise man Jesus Sirach succeeded in putting the substance of biblical faith into a larger context and maintaining its identity at the same time. Since each of the subjects dealt with are timeless fundamental issues of the way humans see themselves and the world, it is not only specialists in Hellenistic philosophy and Judaism who will benefit from reading this book, but also a larger readership.
