More About Jurgen Moltmann
Jürgen Moltmann (born 8 April 1926) is a German Reformed theologian who is Professor Emeritus of Systematic Theology at the University of Tübingen. Moltmann is a major figure in modern theology and was the recipient of the 2000 University of Louisville and Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary Grawemeyer Award in Religion, and was also selected to deliver the prestigious Gifford Lectures in 1984-1985. He has made significant contributions to a number of areas of Christian theology, including systematic theology, eschatology, ecclesiology, political theology, Christology, pneumatology, and the theology of creation.
Influenced heavily by Karl Barth's theology, Hegel's philosophy of history, and Ernst Bloch's philosophy of hope, Moltmann developed his own form of liberation theology predicated on the view that God suffers with humanity, while also promising humanity a better future through the hope of the Resurrection, which he has labelled a 'theology of hope'. Much of Moltmann's work has been to develop the implications of these ideas for various areas of theology. While much of Moltmann's early work was critiqued by some as being non-Trinitarian, during the latter stages of his career Moltmann has become known for developing a form of Social Trinitarianism. His two most famous works are Theology of Hope and The Crucified God.

Just what we need Oct 7, 2008
This book provides a great synthesis of contemporary perspectives on the doctrine of creation. His description of heaven as 'the openness of the earth to God' is one of the most helpful concepts I've come across this year. His approach to anthropology and evolution is also how I would see the Christian church as a whole moving in the next 50 years or so, away from the sterile modernist debates about creationism. Moltmann also has the ability to produce the most interesting-sounding contents pages of any theologian I've ever read. I defy you to read the titles to his chapters and not want to read the whole book straightaway.
