A Broad Place : an autobiography

Jürgen Moltmann (Author), Margaret Kohl (Translator)
Review: "Among the most acclaimed and accomplished theologians of the last hundred years, Jurgen Moltmann is also one of the most popular. His autobiography will certainly be widely read in the churches and the academy and will shed light on the intellectual development of this enormously influential theologian. Ironies abound in this engrossing story: An early life in a nonreligious home led to a lifetime preoccupation with God. Intense experience of death all around him in World War II yielded to a marvelous experience of gratitude and joy in life that are so characteristic of Moltmann. And being steeped in traditional German theology led to a pioneering role in political theology, ecological theology, feminist and Jewish-Christian dialogue, and - above all in the power of future hope to reframe the present."
