    Amazing, simply amazing This may go down as one of my all time favorite books I highly recommend this for pastors, teachers and anyone interested in theology Moltmann demonstrates the absolute centrality of the cross of Christ and its meaning for Christian faith Importantly, he does this with a robust doctrine of the Trinity on the cross the Son experienced Fatherlessness in the cry my God, why have you forsaken me and the Father experienced Sonlessness Yet through this break in the relational God, humanity is now welcomed in And it changes everything Overall, a dense and difficult, but great and rewarding read.

    To the extent that I can understand him, Jurgen Moltmann s Crucified God tops the list of explorations of Christian Theology.Developing on themes that he introduced in Theology of Hope , Moltmann now turns his attention to the crucifixion of Jesus and its theological, psychological, and political implications Moltmann is not content to do theology for theology s sake He sees in theology a complex matrix that helps not only the church, but the entire world.Positively, the aspect of Moltmann s thought that I appreciated was his understanding of the suffering of God and of Christ The cross, as a Trinitarian event, involves all the emotional aspects of God Christ s suffering shows a solidarity with people who suffer God s suffering at the cross completely reverses the thought and value structure of our world or at least it ought to Being the first theologian I have discovered to discuss at length God s suffering Moltmann brings to light an often overlooked element in Christian theology The idea of God suffering has huge implications, not only for theology, but also for pastoral ministry.Negativley, Moltmann consistently goes to places and reaches conclusions that I can not follow For him, the Bible is not necessarily the authoritative Word of God, but a book that is divinely inspired, no matter how flawed it may be His conclusions in the political realm are also troubling He views socialism as the way to overcome economic injustice and democracy as a way to overcome political injustice This creates, of course, Democratic Socialism, which has never presented itself as a real answer to the problems faced by human beings Moltmann s concern is to bring concern to those areas that present major problems for our world todayand I appreciate it I appreciate his concern also that the cross of Jesus plays directly into these concerns My problem comes at his conclusion.The Crucified God is not an easy book to read Much of Moltmann is difficult to understand, but the effort is well worth it Moltmann at times can bring great insight and clarity to the issue of the cross I recommend this book to pastors or others with a serious concern for deep theology.

    The second in Moltmann s trilogy, spanning forty five years commencing with Theology of Hope and ending with the recently published Ethics of Hope.

    Who is God What is God s heart towards man, towards those who suffer, towards those who are godforsaken In the Crucified Christ, hanging on a tree, forsaken by God, we see God s heart towards man Behold, the Christ has been rejected to end rejection Christ has been oppressed to end all oppression God has died to end all death God is the scapegoat that ends all scapegoating What love is this It is the love of the Crucified God.We wanted a God like Zeus, a God who comes with rolling thunder, a God who crushes the wicked under His heel, a God who comes in power, in domination, whose force and authority are omnipotent But then comes Jesus, weak and lowly at heart, sorrowful unto death, non violent, and poor in spirit He is the Crucified God.Not vengeance, not retribution, but forgiveness, for the oppressed, for the oppressor Jesus comes and reveals a new righteousness, a righteousness that breaks the cycles of vengeance and hate, a righteousness that liberates the captives and forgives the sinful.

    Is it possible for a 40 year old book to be a breath of fresh air Because this was such a breath of fresh air for me.Moltmann articulates a theology of the cross that simultaneously takes orthodoxy and the tradition seriously while breaking new ground Of utmost concern for Moltmann is the cross as that which liberates humanity from evil and oppression and enables us to stand in solidarity with the outcast and downtrodden The godforsaken cross empowers the godforsaken in society Such a simple, beautiful idea.My main question is whether the cross saves us from some ontological reality or if it is primarily liberation from evil circumstances This was somewhat unclear in this work, but may be addressed in one of Moltmann s many other writings This is the kind of book that I m disappointed I had to read so quickly for class I had to read the entire thing in just 5 days I look forward to returning to it again and again and spending much time in it s company.

    This book had the most impact on me, personally and theologically, of all the books I read in my courses in grad school I m reading it again to know it better Incisive and eloquent.

    The single best understanding of the crucifixion in my opinion.

    Six months ago I set out to read this book after hearing some buzz about it among some theologically minded friends and acquaintances of mine It has taken six long months in which some sabbaticals were taken due simply to its density and my fickle impatience It is certainly a scholarly read many of the words and phrases Moltmann throws around with ease, and in expectation of understanding on the part of the reader, were lost on me Italicized Latin phrases and theologian names were lurking around every other line.But no matter, because I found the content of the book to be richly satisfying and thought provoking It was originally written in the 70s as part of a trilogy, and I found myself stunned at how applicable it is, even for today s audiences I suppose Solomon s old ecclesiastical adage holds true there is nothing new under the sun, after all The premise of the book lies heavily on a deeper look at just who and what the crucified Christ is and what that means for society, churches, and theology today Moltmann takes readers through a winding maze of examples and propositions to get us to consider a complex set of theses surrounding the historical, trinitarian situation of the crucifixion Throughout I found myself marking many of its passages and pages with sticky notes, and sadly, I must now return it to the library after a long journey together If you have grit, and are profoundly interested in theological subjects, please dare to take this one on it has changed my view of Jesus, and just what occurs in his amazing life, death, and resurrection, forever Humiliation to the point of death on the cross corresponds to God s nature in the contradiction of the abandonment When the crucified Jesus is called the image of the invisible God , the meaning is that this is God, and God is like this God is not greater than he is in this humiliation God is not glorious than he is in this self surrender God is not powerful than he is in this helplessness God is not divine than he is in this humanity The nucleus of everything that Christian theology says about God is to be found in this Christ event The Christ event on the cross is a God event And conversely, the God event takes place on the cross of the risen Christ Here God has not just acted externally, in his unattainable glory and eternity Here he has acted in himself and has gone on to suffer in himself Here he himself is love with all his being.

    Excellent book full of eloquent and profound insights and assertions It was a bit dry and perhaps even pedantic at some points but that may partly be the translators fault or perhaps it was my ability or lack there of to comprehend his arguments If this is an area of interest for you I highly recommend it, if not it is a bit of a commitment due to it s length so maybe not the best book to start with If your looking for an interesting book that s a shorter read I would recommend Greg Boyd s book Cross Vision or perhaps The Day the Revolution began by N.T Wright.
