"In Ethics of Hope, Jurgen Moltmann makes a significant contribution to Christian ethics that will be of interest not only to scholars but to students, pastors, and lay people as well. Addressing the central ethical issues facing our time, Moltmann's distinctively Christian way of doing ethics—from the standpoint of a ‘transformative eschatology’—presents a highly refreshing alternative to existing approaches to Christian ethics." --Lois Malcolm, Luther Seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota
"A summary of a life-time of intellectual labors, personal experiences, and global encounters of a truly great theologian. Full of deeply human wisdom drawn from the well of the Christian faith." --Miroslav Volf, Yale University
"What does hope in action look like? Moltmann's Ethics of Hope shows us. In this long-anticipated companion to his groundbreaking 1964 book, Theology of Hope, Moltmann directs our attention to ‘endangered life, the threatened earth, and the lack of justice and righteousness.’" --Kristine A. Culp, University of Chicago

Such a praxis offers hope to those who believe that the Universe will either suffer a "heat death" of endless expansion, or the "big crunch" of contraction. Such a praxis believes that the end time cannot be solely or even fundamentally understood as a scientific problem, but more correctly, as a time when God makes good on the promise of universal tranformation that we see proleptically in the raising of Jesus from the dead.
This book is a superb follow on to Moltmann's "The Coming God: Christian Escatology." This book should be read by all theology students and those who wish to know what comes next!
