God for a Secular Society: The Public Relevance of Theology

God for a Secular Society: The Public Relevance of Theology

In this masterful analysis of the religious and political dilemmas at the end of the modern age, world-renowned theologian Jürgen Moltmann assays the vaulting dreams and colossal failures of our time. He asks how we came to this point, and he argues strenuously for Christian discipleship and public theology that take sides. In both critical and creative ways he advances the specific relevance of Christian messianic hope to today's thorniest political, economic, and ecological questions—including human rights, environmental rights, globalization, market capitalism, fundamentalisms, and Jewish-Christian relations—and the deeper values contested therein.

In a world reeling between utopia and disaster, Moltmann here passionately and provacatively shows how Christian discipleship, through engagement and solidarity, can blaze a redemptive path.

Excerpts

"The founders of the modern age thought of a new, glorious era for the whole human race; but we are surviving on islands of prosperity planted in a sea of mass misery."
— Jürgen Moltmann
