Theology always has been (and is for Moltmann) not an abstract or otherworldly endeavor but one nourished by, and responsive to, experiences in and with life itself. In this volume, the final in his series of systematic contributions to theology, Moltmann looks ahead from the landmarks of his own theological journey. He searches out those intersections of his own life with contemporary events that have kindled and impelled his theological thinking (part 1). The perspective of hope, the central moment in Moltmann's thought, is freshly explained, while other basic theological themes and concepts are developed and interrelated (part 2). 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.

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."
