How I Have Changed: Reflections on Thirty Years of Theology by Jurgen Moltmann
In 1996, to celebrate Jurgen Moltmann's seventieth birthday, a remarkable group of theologians, both Catholic and Protestant, gathered in Tuebingen. Before a large audience they spent the day discussing how their theology had changed, or not changed, over the previous thirty years, often in a deeply moving way. This book is a record of what they said, together with the text of a subsequent television broadcast and an assessment of the day by a distinguished journalist. In addition to Jurgen Moltmann and his wife Elisabeth Moltmann-Wendel, the theologians involved were Eberhard Juengel, Dorothee Soelle, Johann Baptist Metz, Norbert Greinacher, Joerg Zink, Philip Potter and Hans Kueng. Between them they covered almost all the most important areas of theology, from systematic theology to feminist theology and liberation theology. What was particularly striking was how their careers had been stamped by the war and the subsequent division of Germany, which added an unforgettable personal touch to their accounts. Here is an invaluable guide to those figures who have moulded the present theological scene, figures who as yet have no obvious successors. Jurgen Moltmann is Emeritus Professor of Systematic Theology in the Protestant Theological Faculty of the University of Tuebingen.
