"Some theologians are mirrors of their time. The mid-twentieth century rises from the pages of Tillich as palpably as Combray rising from Proust’s tea and madeleines. Other theologians have a more conflicted relation with their age: engaged, but cutting against the grain; in their time, but not quite of it. Wolfhart Pannenberg, one of the most gifted Protestant theologians of his generation, has never seemed quite to fit his surroundings, which may say more about his surroundings than about him. The German theological world has been far less shaken than the English-speaking world by the changes in academic culture of the last decades: feminism, the hermeneutics of suspicion, the dismissal of truth-claims as disguised assertions of power. Even by German standards, however, Pannenberg’s theology has an oddly old-fashioned air..." from the article: THE ACHIEVEMENT OF WOLFHART PANNENBERG
"In 1987, Richard Bauckham published an introduction of Moltmann’s thought up to 1979 (Moltmann, Messianic Theology in the Making, Marshall Pickering). Now a collection of essays takes us up to 1993. It differs from the first volume in being a less systematic approach to the literature, highlighting key themes and providing a more critical engagement, in contrast with the dominantly expository mode of the earlier work.
Many of these essays have been published before in some form. They work through the themes of divine suffering and theodicy; political theology and ecclesiology; Trinity and Christology; creation, evolution and mysticism. The whole is prefaced by an overview of Moltmann’s theology, which is a good general introduction to his thought. It is immediately followed by ‘Theology of Hope Revisited’, but in one way that seminal first work of Moltmann’s is often revisited in the collection; as often happens when pieces originally published separately are brought together, there is some repetition and some of the basic structural and theological features of this work are often rehearsed.." from the article: The Theology of Jurgen Moltman
