Item description for The Kingdom and the Power: The Theology of Jurgen Moltmann by Geiko Muller-Fahrenholz...
Overview 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".
Publishers Description Moltmann's basic themes and achievements evocatively presented Jurgen Moltmann is arguably the most important German-speaking Protestant thinker since World War II. Recent publication of Experiences in Theology completes his six "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 the 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. 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 the 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 Reformatoin, Jewish, and other thought.

Introducing Moltmann Apr 2, 2007
This is a very useful introduction to Moltmann's career in theology, the questions with which he dealt, and the volumes that came from his reflection upon those questions in the light of world events. Along with the volume by Richard Bauckham (now a bit dated) of St. Andrews University, Scotland on Moltmann's theology this is an outstanding way into the mind of a beautiful Reformed thinker. The volume is written in clear, easy to read language (even though itself a translation of the German original) and strikes just the right note of historical introduction without undue adulation -- although the author was a student of Moltmann's. Highly recommended!
