Paperback
Jurgen Moltmann is Professor of Systematic Theology Emeritus in the protestant Faculty of the University of Tubingen, Germany.

- Publisher "In my end is my beginning," wrote T. S. Eliot, and Jurgen Moltmann's new book is a powerful testament to personal hope in chaotic, even catastrophic times. As Moltmann's award-winning volume "The Coming of God laid out the systematic framework of eschatology (the doctrine of the "last things"), so here he explores the personal meaning of that fundamental affirmation for Christians. Debunking the classic images of Christian apocalyptic scenarios, the final struggle between God and Satan, Christ and the Antichrist, and Armageddon, Moltmann instead shows that Christian expectation of the future has nothing to do with these but everything to do with new beginnings and a horizon of hope. Three parts explore three particular beginnings: birth (childhood and youth), rebirth (failures and defeats), and resurrection (death, judgment, afterlife). This little volume promises to be one of Moltmann's most personal and compelling books and a perennial resource for individuals and classes.
