The living God and the fullness of life by Jürgen Moltmann( Book )

3 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Modern humanity has accepted a truncated, impoverished definition of life. Focusing solely on material realities, we have forgotten that joy, purpose, and meaning come from a life that is both immersed in the temporal and alive to the transcendent. We have, in other words, ceased to live in God. In this book, renowned theologian Jürgen Moltmann shows us what that life of joy and purpose looks like. Describing how we came to live in a world devoid of the ultimate, he charts a way back to an intimate connection with the biblical God. He counsels that we adopt a "theology of life," an orientation that sees God at work in both the mundane and the extraordinary and that pushes us to work for a world that fully reflects the life of its Creator. Moltmann offers a telling critique of the shallow values of consumerist society and provides a compelling rationale for why spiritual sensibilities and encounter with God must lie at the heart of any life that seeks to be authentically human

4 editions published between 1981 and 1993 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jürgen Moltmann : collected readings by Jürgen Moltmann( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jürgen Moltmann's life and work have marked the history of theology after the Second World War in Europe and North America like no other. He is the most widely read, quoted, and translated theologian of our time. His systematic work thrives on the cutting edge of Christian theology in the twenty-first century, challenging and stimulating a whole generation of theologians to work at theology in different and more comprehensive ways. Margaret Kohl, a translator of many of Moltmann's volumes, has chosen representative samples of Moltmann's theological writings from eight of the volumes published by Fortress Press and has written brief prefaces to each of the selections. Moltmann scholar Richard Bauckham provides an extended Introduction."--Back cover
Jesus, man, and the church by Karl Rahner( Book )

4 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Science and wisdom by Jürgen Moltmann( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Moltmann's new book offers a careful theological reading of our contemporary scientific worldview and directly addresses the related cultural dilemmas. Moltmann begins by analyzing the identification of science with the modern spirit and the religious assumptions that inform Western science. He affirms the positive side of scientific advancement, sees the present crisis clearly, and looks for wisdom that can guide our scientific and religious future. The heart of Moltmann's work is a theological understanding and assessment of contemporary cosmology. Core chapters look at creation as an open system, the self-emptying or kenosis of God in the history of the universe, eschatology, the problems of time and eternity, and the idea of God and space. In the final chapters he addresses specific questions in bioethics, historical conflicts between religion and science, and cosmology in a world religious context
The coming of God : Christian eschatology by Jürgen Moltmann( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Moltmann rejects the traditional approach, which focuses on the End, an apocalyptic finale, as a kind of Christian search for the "final solution." He centers instead on hope and God's promise of new creation for all things. "Christian eschatology," he says, "is the remembered hope of the raising of the crucified Christ, so it talks about beginning afresh in the deadly end." Yet Moltmann's novel framework, deeply informed by Jewish and messianic thought, also fosters rich and creative insights into the perennially nettling questions of eschatology
Sun of righteousness, arise! : God's future for humanity and the earth by Jürgen Moltmann( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Moltmann here brings together the biblical, historical, and theological elements of a new integrated Christian vision of the world, especially in light of our contemporary understandings of nature and the evolving universe. Anchored in the resurrection of Jesus, such a vision affirms that God is the god of resurrection promise, God is present in justice and righteousness, Jesus is the son of righteousness, and nature can be seen as the site of God's work toward the fulfillment of life. Here is a theological vision that can integrate our faith, inform our worldview, and fuel our life engagements
The Apostles' Creed in the light of today's questions by Wolfhart Pannenberg( )

6 editions published between 1972 and 2000 in English and German and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, by Wolfhart Pannenberg, is an exploration of the historical interpretation of the Apostles Creed in order to demonstrate the relevance of its articles for the present day
The Spirit of life : a universal affirmation by Jürgen Moltmann( )

6 editions published between 1992 and 2001 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Moltmann brings his characteristic 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
The future of creation : collected essays by Jürgen Moltmann( )

5 editions published between 1979 and 2007 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here collected in one volume are brief, vital articulations of Moltmann's thought on such topics as eschatology, transcendence, hope, creation, the theology of the cross, the Trinity, development, the practice of liberation, justification, and biomedical progress
God in creation : a new theology of creation and the Spirit of God by Jürgen Moltmann( )

6 editions published between 1985 and 1993 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The title expresses the book's intention: not to go on distinguishing between God and the world, so as then to surrender the world, as godless, to its scientific 'disenchantment' and its technical exploitation by human beings, but instead to discover God in all the beings he has created and to find his life-giving Spirit in the community of creation that they share. This view--which has also been called panentheistic (in contrast to pantheistic)--requires us to bring reverence for the life of every living thing into the adoration of God. And this means expanding the worship and service of God to include service for God's creation
The Trinity and the kingdom : the doctrine of God by Jürgen Moltmann( )

4 editions published between 1981 and 1993 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The source of life : the Holy Spirit and the theology of life by Jürgen Moltmann( )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jürgen Moltmann here presents his reflections on the Spirit and the spiritual life that were the essence of his prior book, The Spirit of Life. In this short, accessible work, he combines a deep personal faith with admirable learning and experience. Moltmann views the Holy Spirit as the power of new life, which enlivens body and soul, spirit and mind. In the Holy Spirit we experience the presence of God, community among people, as well as between humans and all created living things on earth

God for a secular society : the public relevance of theology by Jürgen Moltmann( )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this masterful analysis of the religious and political dilemmas at the end of the modern age, world-renowned theologian Jürgen Moltmann assays the vaulting dreams and colossal failures of our time. He asks how we came to this point, and he argues strenuously for Christian discipleship and public theology that take sides. In both critical and creative ways he advances the specific relevance of Christian messianic hope to today's thorniest political, economic, and ecological questions--including human rights, environmental rights, globalization, market capitalism, fundamentalisms, and Jewish-Christian relations--and the deeper values contested therein
