"This book, which in my opinion is Moltmann's best, can be recommended on the basis that it contains challenging and creative insights that can be used by the discriminating reader in the service of church renewal…Moltmann represents the theology of liberation at its best, and those who wish to know more about this theology would do well to study this creative and searching theologian."
--Donald G. Bloesch
"Moltmann is perhaps unsurpassed among his contemporaries in keenness of insight and rhetorical power."
--Daniel L. Migliore, Theology Today
"Moltmann presents a stirring vision which every Christian community could well ponder…With a missionary emphasis, he seeks to help the reader face the question of the church's identity in the light of the contemporary political, economic, and social scene."
