Splendid launch of Together for the Common Good at CCLA yesterday. Join the conversation. http://t.co/y2sp8PhzMw http://t.co/OQhM1o5Tfy
Author(s): Jurgen Moltmann, (preface by Richard Bauckham)
Arguably the most powerful of Moltmann's books. The Crucified God is a seminal work on the crucifixion and its significance. The book takes death despair and dreadfulness the dark side of the human condition with total seriousness and relates these to a liberating hope of redemption through divine agony and suffering. Influential for many years, especially with political and liberation theologians, but also much more widely, the book represents a concentrated blast of hard-edged doctrinal reflection and - now reissued with a Preface by the author's leading British interpretor - will continue to inspire upcoming generations who take seriously the life-changing notion that 'God was in Christ.'
a book that would be of great assistance in university and college teaching, as well as providing a useful reference work for students, clergy and teachers
Professor Jurgen Moltmann is Professor emeritus of Systematic Theology at the Univerisity of Tubingen, Germany. He is one of the most important post-war, post-Holocaust theologians whose work has influenced the last two generations of theological thought in Germany and worldwide.
