In this masterful analysis of the religious and political dilemmas at the end of the modern age, world-renowned theologian Jrgen 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 questionsincluding human rights, environmental rights, globalization, market capitalism, fundamentalisms, and Jewish-Christian relationsand the deeper values contested therein.
In a world reeling between utopia and disaster, Moltmann here passionately and provacatively shows how Christian discipleship, through engagement and solidarity, can blaze a redemptive path.
