Our Only Hope
More than We Can Ask or Imagine
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"With uncompromising compassion and clarity, Margaret Adam brings the grammar of the theological tradition to bear on Moltmannian theology. Her theological therapy produces a better theology of hope, one that can engage the contemporary interlocutors of nihilism, lament, disability theology, and feminist theory while also addressing the real sufferings of contemporary persons."
--M. Therese Lysaught, Loyola University Chicago
"In this important and engaging work, Adam rescues theological hope from the limitations of its Moltmannian fashions by recovering much-needed wisdom from the wider Christian tradition. She likewise challenges us to rethink several intractable problems surrounding Christian hope by engaging with several unconventional yet surprisingly resourceful discourses. A most timely book in an age bereft of genuine hope."
--Philip D. Kenneson, Milligan College
"Our Only Hope offers a fascinating exploration of the complexity of hope from a Christian perspective. Generated from a critical review of Jurgen Moltmann's theology of hope, Adam's work draws upon the riches of Thomist theology to discern a grammar of hope. More than a preference for one theologian over another, however, the book further fleshes out the topic with insights from nihilism, lament, disability studies, feminist theory and feminist theology--a truly groundbreaking move."
--Mary McClintock Fulkerson, Duke Divinity School
