Top Customer Reviews
"And the question `Why am I not dead too?' has haunted me ever since. Why are you alive? What gives your life meaning? Life is good, but to be a survivor is hard. One has to bear the weight of grief."
Bill Johnson's /When Heaven Invades Earth/ draws deeply on the same thoughts.
The translation, however, is abysmal. The Holy Spirit is translated as "it" rather than using a personal pronoun.
The translator (trying to be PC) is not on the same vibe as the writer.
Moltmann writes beautifully about a close-up, not distant, God who loves and empowers us.
This God gives us hope for the future of our planet in the face of all challenges.
