ON HUMAN BEING "It is the suffering figure of the crucified Jesus that has brought the pull towards the lowly, unpretentious, but real being of [the human] into our hope in the Son of Man. Conversely hope in the Son of Man has brought God's hope to the really hopeless on this world. What are the results of this for Christian anthropology?" -Jurgen Moltmann "This series of sketches provides a basis for Moltmann's view of man and woman as socially and politically responsible beings. Moving quickly through biological, cultural, religious, and Christian anthropology, he locates the contemporary problems of humanism in a technological (and inhuman) society. . . . While the future remains central, its features are somewhat sobered in the emphasis on suffering love. -Anne Carr, University of Chicago "Moltmann has made a good contribution . . . with insight to the anxieties of [being human] and to the examination of some current images of [being human] in the ultimate light of Christian faith. . . . What is needed is a life of reconciliation in the actual world, a life of love and hope which becomes possible because of the crucified Son of Man who has experienced and overcome the terrors of actual existence." -John E. Smith, Yale University Jurgen Moltmann is one of the most widely read and influential theologians of our time. Professor of Systematic Theology Emeritus in the Protestant Faculty of the University of Tubingen, Germany, Moltmann's many important and award-winning works include The Crucified God (1974), The Trinity and the Kingdom (1981), and, more recently, Experiences in Theology (2000), Science and Wisdom (2003), In the End-The Beginning: The Life of Hope (2004), and his autobiography, A Broad Place (Fall 2007), all published by Fortress Press.
