Moltmann spent a year as a visiting professor at Duke University between 1967 and 1968 – just after the English Translation of Theology of Hope had been published. During that time Moltmann traveled the United States and gave lectures at various colleges and seminaries. Religion, Revolution, and the Future is a collection of those lectures. And it is excellent.
Below is a reading from “The Revolution of Freedom,” which was presented as an Alden-Tuthill Lecture at Chicago Theological Seminary on Jaunuary 23, 1968. Moltmann here paints a vision for a community that is very different than what most of us in Christian churches are used to: A community based not on all our confessional answers about God, but on unsolved asking for God.
