The Crucified God
Full Product Description
Jurgen Moltmann's The Crucified God is one of the most influential theological books of the twentieth century and a classic to be found on every reading list on Christian doctrine. Arguably the most powerful of Moltmann's books.
The Crucified God is a seminal work on the crucifixion and its significance. The book takes death, despair and dreadfulness, the dark side of the human condition, with total seriousness and relates these to a liberating hope of redemption through divine agony and suffering.
Influential for many years, especially with political and liberation theologians, but also much more widely, the book represents a concentrated blast of hard-edged doctrinal reflection and will continue to inspire upcoming generations who take seriously the life-changing notion that 'God was in Christ.' Listed on the Church Times' 100 Greatest Books list. Reissued with a new foreword by the author himself.
The Crucified God by Jurgen Moltmann was published by SCM Press in April 2015 and is our 6810th best seller. The ISBN for The Crucified God is 9780334053309.

The Crucified GodMelanie Carroll, via The Good Book Stall
This 40th Anniversary Edition comes with a new preface by Moltmann himself which is a wonderful reflection on the book's effect on both people, situations and theology through those years since it was written and in that preface we truly find why this book still speaks so loudly and will continue to be on reading lists for many years yet to come.
The Crucified God is theology of the heart, mind and soul ... a book that came out of personal experience and reflection and that echoes that just as the Crucified God did and still does now. Through the mirror of that pain and suffering we have a theology that speaks to man across times and situations and that Moltmann interpreted for us and presented in a clearly defined soteriology and ecclesiology that spoke to a generation ready for a new theology and understanding.
Well worth reading, and with the new preface this is a great edition of this foundational and influencing work.
