I bet he'd be up for it if he hasn't already got one! One of the highlights of my clerical journey was when Moltmann was key speaker at the Manchester Diocesan Conference way back in the late 80's - If you have never read his book The Open Church you should try and find a copy (it may be out of print) great stuff.

moltman would no doubt use wordpress and post in german, with lots of footnotes

for me his book the crucified god was life changining. i would love to be able to read a blog by him.

"and none other than jurgen moltmann is one of the speakers..." which was nice. (if you've never seen The Fast Show this comment will make no sense).


perhaps you can also convince someone to translate it for us too...


I once heard Jurgen lecture on "what happens when we die" at Duke. I found much of it unintellgible at the time! But by the end he basically said - "well none of use are sure, but whatever it is, we are with God." That was good enough for me. I really enjoyed reading his lectures from the Princeton Institute for Youth Ministry from 1999. One of the talks focused on his life story which included WW2, and I found that he had been befriended by the late Frank Baker whom we knew at Duke, one of the great Wesley historians.



turns out he was there the day before me! o well... it was still nice to see my face beside his in the programme


that's a pity jonny, you could have sent him my regards - i'm sure he hasn't forgot ; )



Come talk about Moltmann with us! (I'm serious, no gag.)
