The Crucified God

40th Anniversary Edition

Author(s)
Published

Publisher writes

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.

Judges' and contributors' comments

Ian Bradley: If I had to single out the work of 20th-century theology that has had most influence on me, this would be it.

Jane Williams, arguing the book should be demoted to its current position: Though it was hugely influential, the problem is, not always in a good way.
