About-

Indwelling the Forsaken Other is a critical reading of Jürgen Moltmann's ethics of discipleship. While Moltmann's notable turn to the inner life of the Trinity as a source for his reflections on the life of the church is influential, it is not without problems. The call emerging from Moltmann's reflection upon Trinitarian life--to copy God in our relationships--may offer some general direction for our actions; however, it also raises several questions. Two important questions for this work are, In what way are we to copy God? and What conditions make it possible to copy God? Moltmann's answers to these questions are insufficient, and consequently he fails to protect the difference between Creator and creation in his analogia relationis. As a result, the ethical direction of Moltmann's work seems to be increasingly muddied and, at best, paradoxical.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Moltmann continues to exert influence in English-speaking theology, and has even found a new reception amongst 'emerging' theologians. Bonzo's book is a welcome addition to this conversation, combining charitable exposition with incisive, nuanced critique."
--James K. A. Smith, Associate Professor of Philosophy, Calvin College
