A Broad Place: An Autobiography
J rgen Moltmann's life and work have marked the history of theology after the Second World War in Europe and North America like no other. He is the most widely read, quoted, and translated theologian of our time. Now, after celebrating his eightieth birthday, he looks back on a life engaged in and forging a Christian response to the tumult and opportunities of our age. In his autobiography Moltmann tells his engaging and searching life story, from his Hamburg youth in an unconventional parental home up to the "incompleteness" of the present moment. Yet his narrative also sheds light on the creative arc of Moltmann's work, on the journey of his own theological development from its beginnings after World War II through the beginnings of political theology and, most phenomenally, the advent of the theology of hope.A wide-ranging document alert to the deeper currents of his time and ours, Moltmann's work is also an engrossing reconsideration of a life full of intense experience and new beginnings.
