Sun of Righteousness, Arise!: God's Future for Humanity and the Earth

Sun of Righteousness, Arise!: God's Future for Humanity and the Earth

The astonishing theological creativity of Jürgen Moltmann continues in this new work, a vision of the Christian future, centered in God, God's reign, and God's justice or righteousness.

Moltmann here brings together the biblical, historical, and theological elements of a new integrated Christian vision of the world, especially in light of our contemporary understandings of nature and the evolving universe. Anchored in the resurrection of Jesus, such a vision affirms that God is the God of resurrection promise, God is present in justice and righteousness, Jesus is the son of righteousness, and nature can be seen as the site of God's work toward the fulfillment of life. Here is a theological vision that can integrate our faith, inform our worldview, and fuel our life engagements.

"Forty years later, Moltmann's 'theology of hope' still reads like a breath of fresh air, this time carried by the winds that have picked up in the meanwhile, in particular his foundational deconstruction of monotheism via a vision of the trinitarian history of God and, more recently, his perculiarly delightful ideas about theology of nature. What is new here that holds everything together, however, is a theology of the resurrection that is christologically focused, scientifically literate, and existentially inspiring. Let's hope this is not Moltmann's last book."
