Over the past three decades- as fads in theology have come and gone - the work of Jurgen Moltmann has assumed a position of enduring vitality. 'Theology of Hope', The Church in the Power of the Spirit,' and 'The Crucified God' and rest of Moltmann's core corpus have formed a watershed which supplies one of the very few viable theologies still relevant to the practice of Christians in the world.
The fourteen essays in this book have lasting value in that they portray the development of the author's thought in relation to our ever-changing historical and social situation. Theology, ethics, philosophy of religion, and politics coalesce as the author raises the basic issue of our time.
To scan the table of contents and see such titles as "The Crucified God and the Apathetic Man," "Racism and the Right to Resist," "Bringing Peace to a Divided World," and "Introduction to the 'Theology of Hope'" is to be placed in the midst of exciting and enduring Christian thought.
Jurgen Moltmann is Professor of Theology Emeritus at the University of Tubingen, Germany.
