Item description for A Church of Hope: A Study of the Eschatological Ecclesiology of Jurgen Moltmann by Van Nam Kim & Jurgen Moltmann...
In A Church of Hope, author Van Nam Kim examines the ecclesiology of Jurgen Moltmann, a renowned Protestant theologian. Espousing a vision of unity for humanity, Moltmann's ecclesiology relates both to Christology and the theology of hope. He calls for the Church to become more involved in world affairs in order to improve the conditions of human beings and all creation. According to Moltmann, in the third millennium, the Church should become a 'Church of Hope.' This book will instigate a new understanding of ecumenism. Catholics are presented with an opportunity to understand the ecclesiology from a Protestant viewpoint. In contrast, Protestants will garner new insight into the foundation and traditions of the universal church prior to its division. Both Catholic and Protestant churches will be able to see how Moltmann proposes a church renewal, referring back to its Christological roots and projecting to the kingdom of God. Those who occupy posts in church hierarchy, as well as the laity, are encouraged to read this thought-provoking book, which will contribute greatly to a better understanding of world religions.
