Theology as Hope
On the Ground and Implications of Jürgen Moltmann's Doctrine of Hope
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"One of the most significant theological texts of the second-half of the twentieth century, Theology of Hope remains amongst the most enduring in Jurgen Moltmann's output. In this clear and incisive study, Ryan Neal shows how the theme of hope shapes Moltmann's subsequent work across the field of Christian doctrine. A perceptive study, this will make a valuable contribution to our understanding of Moltmann's theology."

"In the 1960s the so-called theologies of hope rolled in to become one of the most noteworthy and influential waves of the late twentieth-century European theology, taking seriously a claim made four decades earlier by Karl Barth, that all theology is eschatology. Contrary to much of the commentary on his work, the oeuvre of the German theologian Jurgen Moltmann continued to be shaped by many of the concerns about hope and theological insights he developed during this earlier period, and Neal's valuable book convincingly demonstrates that this is the case. This is an important, critical, and excellently researched study of a perennial theological issue in the fruitful reflections of one of the most important modern theologians."
