In June 1996, to celebrate Jurgen Moltmann s seventieth birthday, a remarkable group of theologians, both Catholic and Protestant, gathered in Tubingen. They spent the day discussing, before a large audience, how their theology had changed or not changed over the previous thirty years. This book is a record of what they said, together with the text of a subsequent television broadcast and an assessment of the day by a distinguished journalist. In addition to Jurgen Moltmann and his wife Elisabeth Moltmann-Wendel, the theologians involved were Eberhard Jungel, Dorothee Solle, Johann Baptist Metz, Norbert Greinacher, Jorg Zink, Philip Potter, and Hans Kung. Between them they cover nearly all of the most important areas of theology, from systematic theology to feminist theology and liberation theology. They also show in a striking way how their careers were stamped by the war and the subsequent division of Germany, lending an unforgettable personal touch to their accounts. Here, then, are most of the great European theologians of the last thirty years, many of them about to retire, leading us to wonder whether a future generation will ever see the likes of these again. Jurgen Moltmann is Emeritus Professor of Systematic Theology in the Protestant Theological Faculty at the University of Tubingen.
