Overview In complementary ways, these authors have emphasized the eschatological character of Christianity in a way that does justice both to the transcendent and this-worldly implications of the gospel.

Contemporary Challenges for Christianity Jul 1, 2000
Essays by two leading theologians discuss the subjects that they find challenging for the future of Christianity. For Metz, most of the challenge is in restructuring Christianity from a European-based perspective to a more global inclusion of the needs of the non-European world. Metz looks forward to the revitaliation of Christianity from the common base of dealing with the issue of suffering in the world. Moltmann's topics deal with increasing ecumenical understandings between the various Christian sects and take up a broad range of theological isssues that often divide rather than bring together modern Christians such as Mariology and views on the Trinity. Most interesting is an essay on the concept of the triune God in relation to the Judaic concept of God. This collection of essays is readable by a lay person with a respectable knowledge base of traditional theology.
