Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Lived Religion - Conceptual, Empirical and Practical-Theological Approaches: Essays in Honor of Hans-Günter Heimbrock contains the table of contents and an introduction. It may be helpful to recall pairs of opposites which help to demarcate the lived-religion approach: The primary focus of lived religion is on a variety of beliefs and practices, not on propositions and reflections. Experts, which means priest and prophets in sociological terms, and their organizations are not the exclusive authorities and focus of interest, but rather the "people on the street," i.e. lay people. The term ?lived religion' signifies a shift of focus in order to attend to the religiosity of individuals and groups as embedded in the contexts of life-worlds and biographies. Thus ?lived religion' includes phenomena which are not explicitly—at least not at first sight—interpreted as being of a religious nature.

Keywords: Hans-Günter Heimbrock; lived-religion
