In a world of creationism where the age of the earth is sometimes measured in thousands of years it is refreshing to read a theologian who can accept evolution alongside creation.

1 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Antti Laakso on 13 Sept. 2010
Format: Paperback
This book contains excellent doctrine of creation. It brought about the whole new ideas inside my mind. Especially I liked the thought about God's kenosis in creation and the bringing of several doctrines more closer (for example, one can see better the connection between the doctrine of creation and the doctrine of redemption). This book gave a lot of new resources to build more ecological theory. Moltmann wants to have the Bible and Christian doctrine in the priority position, and so his book is useful even the very conservative readers.
This warm attitude to this book doesn't mean that I would accept all its thoughts. I myself am not panentheist but classical theist and I see no reason why I should think otherwise. It's important to admit that the Holy Spirit can live in the creation, but why the world should be in God? To put shortly, I am not convinced by Moltmann's arguments. Even if Moltmann gives priority to the Bible and the Christian doctrine, there are some philosophical premises. Even if they are intelligent and understandable, I don't see them so reasonable that I should endorse them. For example, the world is in the end necessary for the God (because of His essence) and the God has dipolar nature. These philosophical things seemed me as unnecessary and ethically and theologically harmful. But because I believe that Moltmann's doctrine of creation can stand without these assumptions (Moltmann as panentheist would think maybe otherwise), I am ready to give a good review for the book. It contains ecologically and theologically so refreshing ideas that it deserves it. (See John W. Cooper's "Panentheism: The Other God of the Philosophers" to get a better picture about Moltmann's panentheism and the problems in that doctrine.)
And yet a warning for those who are non-native English-speakers like I: the text may be sometimes quite difficult to understand. But it's only sometimes, and that's why it isn't so dangerous.

Creation for God's Sake 18 Feb. 2012
By Kyle G Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If this were my first Moltmann, I'm not sure what I would think. I'm sure I probably would have been offended by his dethroning of more popular creation theologies that place the human individual at the center. Moltmann reverses this trajectory entirely by beginning with the question "what does creation mean for God?" Even questions of theological anthropology are addressed from an entirely different vantage point. For example, rather than beginning with the question "what makes humans different from animals?", he asks "what makes humans similar to animals?" and then moving to differentiation. Although this move can be disorienting, it's effect is rewarding. The net result is a trinitarian creation theology that affirms the goodness of God's creation that moves beyond the Western impasse of faith and science. Further, the human person exists in a complex ecosystem interpenetrated and held together by God's Holy Spirit and is awaiting it's consummation.

God in Creation 27 Jun. 2011
By Carolyn J. Schoenborn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Outstanding material; but definitely not written for the average lay person. Has heavy theological and philosophical concepts and terminology. But Moltmann does an excellent job tying the meaning and significance of creation, ecology and eschatology into the realities of present-day living.

A VITAL STUDY ON THE THEOLOGY OF CREATION 1 Oct. 2013
By William J. Havlicek, PhD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
God in Creation (The Gifford Lectures, 1984-1985)

I have benefited greatly from my study of Moltmann's Gifford Lectures and the rich biblical understanding upon which his ideas are based. Always a clear and deep thinker Moltmann encourages any serious reader to consider just how profound religious thought can be. Surprisingly for such a timeless title, everyday themes are contextualized in essential biblical ways. It is a book that makes communication itself a sacred matter and based on the conviction that God is the author of creation - communication should hold an essential role for The Creator, creation and creatures. This is a very good book.

Good read with pertinent information for the end of this age. You will need a good online dictionary to read this book. Nevertheless you should give it a try.
