But more than that, Moltmann uses these theological tinders to spark the flames of the chief directions in liberating theological thought today-black, Latin American, Minjung, and feminist theologies -(part 3) and the central motif of Trinity (part 4).
This volume not only introduces Moltmann's theology, it also utilizes the contemporary religious and political scene to incite ones own theological reflection.
"[Moltmann's systematic work] thrives on the cutting edge of Christian theology.... It will challenge and stimulate a whole generation of theologians to work at theology in different and more comprehensive ways." (M. Douglas Meeks, Vanderbilt Divinity School)

Read an Excerpt
From the Preface: "For me, theology was, and still is, an adventure of ideas. It is an open, inviting path.... The road emerged only as I walked it.... In this book, I have described the way my own biography has given me ways into theology in general, in my own person and in the community of the church and the university; and then in particular, access to the individual theological problems.
