Book Reviews / Journal of Empirical Th eology 22 (2009) 103-116 105 Höger, C. (2008). Abschied vom Schöpfergott? Welterklärungen von Abiturientinnen und Abiturienten in qualitativ-empirisch religionspädagogischer Analyse. Berlin: LIT Verlag. ISBN 978-3-8258-0799-3. Th e book “Farewell to the God of Creation?” seeks to answer the question formulated in the title by exploring the understanding of young adolescents of the creation of the world, in relation to their interpretative reading of the Story of Creation as it is narrated in the Bible, and as it is passed on in roman catholic RE lessons to German gymnasium students aged about 18 years. Th e research report starts oﬀ with a detailed introduction to the context of the kind of plural society in which religious education takes place these days. Developments in the natural sciences and, as a consequence, the plurality of theories on the creation of the world cast doubt on the biblical narratives: as a result, some youngsters lose their belief in God. Other research scholars, however, ﬁ nd signs of the development of a plural God concept. In the author’s eyes it is necessary to reﬂ ect upon the relationship between natural-scientiﬁ c theories and the biblical narratives
