The Future of Creation: Collected Essays

The Future of Creation: Collected Essays

In these essays, written during the fertile years between Theology of Hope and The Church in the Power of the Spirit, world-renowned theologian Jürgen Moltmann demonstrates the remarkable depth and rhetorical power so characteristic of his major works. Here collected in one volume are brief, vital articulations of Moltmann's thought on such topics as eschatology, transcendence, hope, creation, the theology of the cross, the Trinity, development, the practice of liberation, justification, and biomedical progress.

Endorsements

"These essays are not the type one frequently encounters in collections of this kind. They are not the 'dribblings' left over from earlier works, nor are they summaries for theological readers 'on the run.' In one sense they give us a theological road map as Moltmann plotted his course. They offer one of the best and most readable analytical surveys of contemporary methods in eschatology. They probe the 'patripassianism' entailed in the doctrines of Christology and Trinity. The point us toward a fuller comprehension of the doctrine of creation and its interconnectedness within the whole scope of Christian belief."
– James C. Logan, Professor of Theology Emeritus, Wesley Theological Seminary

"In Moltmann, one meets a special combination of a strict orthodoxy and daring openness of interpretation."
– Arthur R. Peacocke, Journal of Theological Studies
