Publisher's Description

J rgen Moltmann formulates necessary questions about the significance of Jesus the Christ for persons today. He offers a compelling portrait of the earthly Jesus as the divine brother in our distress and suffering and points to the risen Christ as the warrant for the "future in which God will restore everything . . . and gather everything into his kingdom." Urging that acknowledgment of Christ and discipleship are two sides of the same coin, Moltmann contends that the question of Jesus Christ for today is not just an intellectual one. Moltmann takes fresh approaches to a number of crucial topics: Jesus and the kingdom of God, the passion of Christ and the pain of God, Jesus as brother of the tortured, and the resurrection of Christ as hope for the world, the cosmic Christ, Jesus in Jewish- Christian dialogue, the future of God, and others.

    This week I finished reading Jesus Christ for Today World by Jrgen Moltmann. Moltmann is a German Reformed theologian who is Professor Emeritus of Systematic Theology at the University of Tubingen is known for his own form of liberation theology which is based on the view that God suffers with humanity while promising a future through the hope of Christs resurrection which points to God who will restore everything and gather everything into his future kingdom. In this book based which is based on Moltmanns public lectures we are provided an accessible introduction to the Christology of one of Europes great theologians.

    The overarching question of who is Christ for us today? is answered thematically in each of the eight chapters attempting to answer the key question posed. Then each chapter is divided into three sections where Moltmann first looks at the biblical text relating to the topic of that chapter. Secondly he then provides his theological reflection on the topic and then proceeds to provide some direction for this theology to be fleshed out in Christian practice. He attempts to share the thought that what we know about Christ does effect what we do as Christians. He states it this way in one part of this volume:

    Believing in the resurrection does not just mean assenting to a dogma and noting a historical fact. It means participating in this creative act of Gods Resurrection is not a consoling opium, soothing us with the promise of a better world in the hereafter. It is the energy for a rebirth of this life. The hope doesnt point to another world. It is focused on the redemption of this one. Jrgen Moltmann, Jesus Christ for Today's World

    While this book serves as only as a general introduction to Moltmanns theological thought surrounding Christ may lead readers to delve deeper into Moltmanns other more exhaustive academic books which address these questions in deeper larger detail. I find this book a great primer to Moltmanns Christology and great addition to anyones library.
