4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 13 April 1999
Format: Paperback
As a Pentecostal-Charismatic I really enjoyed reading this book. Here in a simple and sensitive way Moltmann, who is one of Europe's leading theologians, distills in a small book a lifetime of reflection on and struggle with the Spirit. Themes that I thought familiar (such as prayer and holiness) I found to be challengingly unfamiliar through this book. One excellent feature of this book was the way it discussed the Spirit in relation to contemporary social and personal issues.

A theological look at the Spirit that effects everyday life 8 Mar. 2003
By Robert A. Terrell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Anything written by Jurgen Moltmann is a must read (a difficult read but still a most read). He is the greatest living theologian in the world and this book continues to confirm this in my mind. When I understand him I am dumbfounded by his words. He discussion of our world being ruled by our fear of death has changed my life. How can we really live when even Christians fear death? For example - at one time in history our society was intimately involved with the dead. If you died your family would be the ones who took care of you, prepared you for burial, and then buried in the center of town by the church where everyone would be reminded of your life. Now if you are dying we place you in a hospital and even there move you away from the other patients into an I.C.U., once you die we give your body to someone else (a mortician) to take care of it and prepare it for burial, and then we bury you on the outskirts of town where we can forget about you. We are scared of death and that keeps us from living. Of course, his discussion on the four positions of prayer is also very good. This is one of his easier to read works but it is still excellent.

Eloquent, Insightful Discussion of the Source of Life and the Holy Spirit 3 May 2008
By Craig Stephans - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Moltmann writes in an eloquent manner about the theology of life and the Holy Spirit. He begins the book by sharing a personal episode from his life as a prisoner of war where he studied and learned the knowledge of the saving truth in Christ. This is a stimulating look at Moltmann's roots in theology and life with Jesus. His writing is refreshing because as well as writing theologically Moltman writes from a personal experience with God that seems to flow from an intimacy true seekers of Christ would like to emulate.

He writes of the relationship of the Holy Spirit within the Trinity with the Father and the Son and the sending of the Holy Spirit to Christians. As he expands on the Holy Spirit's role and life in the church, he writes about the Christian life in community with each other and with God.

He also writes about God in creation. This section leads into what might be called a treatsie on environmentalism.

His final chapter is on prayer and offers helpful insights into Christian prayer and communication with God.

Overall, this is an excellent book for all Christians that can serve devotionally to bring us closer to God.

Definitely worth reading! 7 July 2014

I have gleaned so much from this book. I often hear one of my favorite ministers quote the works of Moltmann; now I understand why. This work is full of timeless truths and eye opening ideas about the nature and work of the Holy Spirit. I highly recommend it.

New Light on the Apathy of the Soul 5 April 2012
By Cecil J. Thompson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Jurgen Moltmann's book, The Source of Life: The Holy Spirit and The Theology of Life, is a remarkable book. Moltmann's range of discussion about the Holy Spirit in both our experience and understanding is broad. The whole discussion unmistakably points to the Holy Spirit as the basis of life; in other words, the mystery that supports our existence. Yet I find particularly his discussion of "The Meditation of Hope" uniquely guiding our appreciation of the book. There, Moltmann says "We experience the power of hope when we have to fight against our apathy of soul." He says "We sense that it is keeping us alive if, when the outlook is sombre, we say 'nevertheless', and dare life." This "apathy of soul" elucidates our understanding of the sensory part of the soul as tending to grow weary under the strains and stresses of life. It comes across that the Spirit is what allows us to overcome this apathy that is capable of putting individual life in a deep freeze when we least expect it. The Holy Spirit, in this wonderful text, becomes the champion that removes this threat of tragic indifference. I highly recommend this book.
