Demgegenüber leben wir seit langem ohne das Bedürfnis nach Rechtfertigung, ja ohne auch nur die Frage danach. Rechtfertigung wird ersetzt durch Rechthaben. Dass uns recht zu haben genügt, nennt Martin Walser eine Verarmung. Um deutlich zu machen, was once uns abhandengekommen ist, geht er zurück in die Vergangenheit: von Kafka zu Augustinus; zu Luther, Calvin und Max Weber; zu Nietzsche und Karl Barth, in deren Gegenüberstellung das Buch seinen Höhepunkt hat. «Einschlafen», sagt er, «könnte ich ohne sie. Aber um aufzuwachen aus dieser und jener Verschlafenheit, brauche ich beide.»

Über Rechtfertigung ist Gewissenserkundung und Suche, Annäherung an Vorbilder und Vordenker, um über «verführerische Sprachbewegungen» zu den entscheidenden Fragen des Lebens, Glaubens und Schreibens vorzudringen. Oder zumindest zu einer Ahnung von dem, used to be fehlt.
