Item description for Theology of Hope by Jurgen Moltmann & James W. Leitch...

Publishers Description
"The following efforts bear the title Theology of Hope, not because they set out once again to present eschatology as a separate doctrine and to compete with the well known textbooks. Rather, their aim is to show how theology can set out from hope and begin to consider its theme in an eschatological light. For this reason they inquire into the ground of the hope of Christian faith and into the responsible exercise of this hope in thought and action in the world today. The various critical discussions should not be understood as rejections and condemnations. They are necessary conversations on a common subject which is so rich that it demands continual new approaches."

More About Jurgen Moltmann & James W. Leitch

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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Theology of Hope?

Groundbreaking Work in Theology  May 5, 2000
Moltmann's Theology of Hope represents a groundbreaking work in theology.
The original German work was entitled Theologie der Hoffnung, and was
written in 1965 during the period of West German Reconstruction. In the
work, Moltmann attempts to articulate the Christian hope as a challenge to
both the desparation and the official optimism of a Reconstruction that
sought only to return to the glory days of the past rather than live in the
hope of a completely new future that comes from God, who lives not so much
above us but in front of us, drawing us into God's own future for the world.
Moltmann skillfully weaves together elements of Ernst Bloch's Prinzip der
Hoffnung (Principle of Hope), Hegel's 'Speculative Good Friday,' and the
'Death of God' theology to present the Christian hope to the post-war Europe
(and world). Thus, Moltmann's Theology of Hope has earned itself a place
among the greatest works of theology in the 20th century. The book created a
rush of interest in eschatology within theological circles, which soon took
the name 'Theology of Hope' in the later 1960's. Last year, Moltmann took up
the theme of eschatology once again in The Coming of God. It is quite
fitting that Moltmann should have returned, at the end of his theological
journey, to a theme with which he began some 35 years ago -- with the hope
of the coming God, who draws the cosmos to God's own end (purpose) for it.
We would all be well served to follow Moltmann's advice: it is not so
important to understand history from the perspective of the end, as it is to
transform it, as we live in hope (anticipation) of God's future for it.
