Praise for the Print Edition

This series of sketches provides a basis for Moltmann’s view of man and woman as socially and politically responsible beings. Moving quickly through biological, cultural, religious, and Christian anthropology, he locates the contemporary problems of humanism in a technological (and inhuman) society . . . While the future remains central, its features are somewhat sobered in the emphasis on suffering love.

—Anne Carr, theologian, University of Chicago
