"Far-reaching and profound."
Jurgen Moltmann, Professor Emeritus of Systematic Theology, University of Tubingen
"This is the book for any student of theology eager for an in-depth exposition of the general contours and underlying structure of Moltmann's theology. With philosophical originality and scriptural sensitivity, Ansell lays bare the structure of Moltmann's highly complex thought as a 'coincidence of opposites' in which the historical and eschatological directions of time are in simultaneous opposition even as they are in underlying harmony. Ansell deftly demonstrates how this configuration enables Moltmann coherently to relate the human and divine, nature and grace, time and eternity, creation and God, freedom and universal salvation. A stunning achievement!"
James H. Olthuis, Emeritus Professor of Philosophical Theology, Institute for Christian Studies, Toronto
"Few subjects impinge more directly on the heart of Christian faith in the God and Father of Jesus Christ than those bound up with issues of eschatological destiny. What we believe about the future of the world and our fellow humans in God's hands cannot but be closely entwined with our fundamental convictions about God's character. Recent years have seen a resurgence of serious theological work in this area, and a wide range of theological proposals. Here, Nik Ansell provides a penetrating and authoritative study of Jurgen Moltmann's contribution to the conversation, and suggests how this might be appropriated and built upon to develop an eschatology that is scripturally earthed, intellectually compelling, and theologically responsible."
