Resurrected to Eternal Life
On Dying and Rising
In this daring meditation, Jﾁrgen Moltmann interrogates dying, the nature of death, and the hope of eternal life.

Seasoned readers will find here a capstone to Moltmann's career of theological exploration, while those new to his thought will find a concise and elegant entry point into his work.
