Jurgen Moltmann is arguably the most important German-speaking Protestant thinker since World War II. Recent publication of Experiences in Theology completes his six-volume "Contributions to Systematic Theology" and makes possible an informed and intelligent overview of this theological giant's lifework.
Muller-Fahrenholz traces Moltmann's thought from its beginnings in his conversion experiences in a British POW camp and his decisive encounter with both the Holocaust and the cross, to his archimedean insights in Theology of Hope and The Crucified God. He then examines Moltmann's turn to liberation theology in 1979 and the flowering of his thought in the systematic volumes since then.
The Kingdom and the Power gets at "the theological passion on which Moltmann's manifold and extensive work draws" and explains its chief themes: the future as a horizon of hope, the suffering God, the dynamics of Trinity, as well as its relation to recent German theology and its use of Reformation, Jewish, and other thought.
This invaluable guide enables readers to appreciate the awesome systematic power of Moltmann's vision and his relentless pursuit of divine knowledge and human flourishing.
The author traces Moltmann's thought from its beginnings in his conversion experience in a British P.O.W. camp and his decisive encounter with both the Holocaust and the cross to his archimedean insights in "Theology of Hope" and "The Crucified God".
