The Spirit of Life: A Universal Affirmation


Fortress Press 2001

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Jürgen Moltmann, “the foremost Protestant theologian in the world,” brings his characteristic audacity to this traditional topic, cutting to the heart of the matter with a simple identification: What we experience every day as the spirit of life is the spirit of God. Such considerations give Moltmann’s treatment of the different aspects of life in the Spirit a verve and vitality that are concrete and existential.

Veteran readers will find a rich and subtle extension of Moltmann’s Trinitarian and Christological works as he makes bold use of key insights from feminist and ecological theologies. Newcomers will find a fascinating entree into the heart of his work: the transformative potential of the future.
