I'd heard various good things about the book and have seen it referenced by quite a few people as being highly influential in their view of the crucifixion. But from the very start, this was not what I was expecting at all. The book begins not so much with theological exposition, but with a sociological look at the relevance of belief in the church and of the church's place in society. From the outset, Moltmann states that his intention is to give food for thought and stimulate discussion, rather than give a systematic theology of the cross.

What follows is an extremely tightly written work. That is, is it not easily broken down and each sentence is carefully thought through and argued; and it is not all that easy to follow the argument, if I'm honest. There were numerous times I found myself having to go back on myself, re-read certain passages and try and find the origin of the thread. In that respect, it is not dissimilar to the way Paul wrote his letter to the Romans, with lots of sentences starting with a reference (e.g. therefore, so, since, etc.) to what had been discussed before. The line of thinking, as it is referred to in numerous places, is Luther's theologia crucis.

A very large focus is put on the emphasis of God suffering as a result of the crucifixion, and of exploring the theology of what it means for God to be in Jesus and therefore for God to be crucified. Now a lot of my reading, and probably most people's, will be coloured by their own pre-existing ideas about the nature of trinitarian theology and what it means for Jesus to be identified as God and yet abandoned and rejected by God on the cross.

The only book you have to read as a Candidate for the Methodist Ministry - but well worth the time. You may not agree with some of the points but that is the point of theological discussion. God Bless and enjoy reading

I found this book very heavy going. I am probably the wrong person to read German theological ideas. I found it very difficult to keep concentrating since the language is difficult

For a very academic theological book, it was also very empowering. I loved reading it I felt it was brought a very good argument for the suffering of God.
