Sun of Righteousness, Arise!


Fortress Press 2010

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


The astonishing theological creativity of Jürgen Moltmann continues in Sun of Righteousness, Arise! and proclaims a vision of the Christian future, centered in God, God’s reign, and God’s justice and righteousness.

Moltmann brings the biblical, historical, and theological elements of a new, integrated Christian worldview to light in conjunction with 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.

Praise for the Print Edition

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 peculiarly 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.
