Description

Moltmann, "the foremost Protestant theologian in the world" (Church Times), brings his characteristic and audacity to this traditional topic and cuts 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 here a rich and subtle extension of Moltmann's trinitarian and christological works, even as he makes bold use of key insights from feminist and ecological theologies, from recent attention to embodiment, and from charismatic movements. Newcomers will find a fascinating entree into the heart of his work: the transformative potential of the future.

Endorsements

"Moltmann develops a theology of the Holy Spirit that links the Christian community's experience of the Spirit to the sanctification and liberation of life. He brilliantly displays the ecological and political significance of Christian belief in the Trinity."
— Francis Schüssler Fiorenza, Harvard Divinity School

Reviews

"Moltmann ... offers a rich and subtle extension of his trinitarian and christological thought, making bold use of key insights from feminist and ecological theologies, and from recent charismatic movements and a stress on embodiment. ... With his emphatic insistence on the Spirit, Moltmann's clear call to conscience as the one indispensable element for human survival is essential reading for our times and highly recommended for Christians and other truth seekers in search of an enhanced and motivational understanding of spirituality within the context of a contemporary and secular world."
