Praise for the Print Edition

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
