Overview
Jurgen Moltmann has marked the history of theology after the Second World War in Europe and North America like no other. He is the most widely read, quoted, and translated theologian of our time. Now, after Moltmann has celebrated his eightieth birthday, he looks back on a life engaged in forging a Christian response to the tumult and opportunities of our time. In this autobiography Moltmann tells his life story, from his Hamburg youth in an "alternative" parental home to the incomplete completion of the present moment, and he reflects on the journey of his own theological development and creativity. A wide-ranging document alert to the deeper currents of his time and ours, Moltmann?s work is at the same time an entertaining reconsideration of a life full of intense experience and new beginnings. This autobiography will be widely read in the churches and the academy and will shed light on the intellectual development of this enormously influential theologian. Includes previously unpublished black and white photos.

More About Jurgen Moltmann & Margaret Kohl

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.

Jurgen Moltmann has published or released items in the following series...
  1. Concilium: Theology in the Age of Renewal
  2. Gifford Lectures
  3. Paternoster Theological Monographs

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Catholic Appreciation for Moltmann  Jan 31, 2008
I was first captivated by the theology of Moltmann in the 1970's when I read his first major work, "Theology of Hope". My own concern for social political realites found theological partners in theologians like Moltmann, Metz, Schillebeeckx and the new "theologies of liberation".

This autobiography in a glimpse into those moments of a person's life that remind us that theology has much to do with one's own experiences of love, suffering, justice and hope. Throughout this book I sense I was looking into the soul of a man tested by life's crosses but who, none the less, was filled with resurrection joy.

His discussion of his search for Christ and where he found him, or perhaps more correctly where Christ found him, is poignant and inspiring. His work with Catholic Theologians like Kung, Metz, Kaspar and others reminds us that Christians of all denominations have one thing in common, the desire to be faithful disciples of Jesus Christ in the real world with its real problems.

One of the strengths of the book is the discussion of his family life. This is a love story between a man and women sharing that love with others in so many ways.

I have read all of Moltmann's books because they help to rekindle within me hope and resistance to oppression and suffering in the power of the Spirit. His retirement comes to the theological community as a great disappointment because we believe he has so much more to say. But we are grateful for the wintess and life of J. Moltmann and wish him and his family a joyous retirement.
 
The Life and Theology of the Multi-Faceted Moltmann  Jan 12, 2008
This book is a window into the mind, heart, and life of one of the most influential and creative theologians of the twentieth century. If you are interested in hearing the story behind Moltmann's expansive theological project, then read this book.
A BROAD PLACE begins with Moltmann's youth and conversion in the wake of WW2, then traces the beginnings of his theological studies, the construction of his theology of hope, his political theology, his theology of the cross, his trinitarian theology, his ecological doctrine of creation, and ends with reflections from the symposium of theologians gathered for his seventieth birthday.
From the beginning, when Moltmann recounts how his comrades were blown to pieces (right next to him!) at the close of WW2, one is gripped by the story of someone who "felt rescued by Christ" from his own darkness and guilt. You then see how his early experiences as a German soldier and POW reverberates throughout the rest of his life, how this man continues to "read the Bible with the searching eyes of a God-forsaken prisoner" as he crafts his many theological contributions. His theology of hope takes on new meaning when we read about the cavernous, suffocating despair from which it emerges. It also fleshes out why he is so passionately committed to Jewish-Christian dialogue, for the horrors of Auschwitz have never left him.
Moreover, Moltmann gives intriguing details on what takes place in his own life that leads him to develop his theology of the cross, his theology of the people, and his theology of Exodus and the kingdom of God. Along the way, Moltmann travels the world to interact with a wide array of people, including Marxists in Europe, liberation theologians in America, theologians and pastors in Asia, and numerous ecumenical gatherings all over the planet. (I kept asking myself, "How can one person do all this?!")
There are also many tender moments where Moltmann speaks of his love and respect for his wife Elisabeth, someone who has deeply impacted his theological outlook, especially by helping him better understand how women see and experience God and the community of creation.
Therefore, if you are curious about the ecumenically-minded person behind the many books he's written, then check out A BROAD PLACE. It is a vivid example of "biographical theology/theology as biography," one from which "the unquenchable spark of hope" glints off nearly every page. [If you want a more detailed assessment of A BROAD PLACE, then check out my review in Anglican Theological Review, Summer 2008.]
