This article provides a qualitative-empirical analysis of God-images among young Germans. The analysed images of God find themselves within a dialectic relationship between discontinuity and continuity with traditional Christian faith. Often images of God are in discontinuity with traditional Christian faith. Young people speak of God as 'construction' or as 'part of an entire power'. At the same time they are also very close to Christian tradition, when they stress the absolute reference of human beings to God or refer to conscience as the place for Gods voice. The researchers conclude that traditional and individual images of God do not exclude each other, but are interwoven with each other.
