Jürgen Moltmann, Theology of Hope: The Church in the WorldWe’ve made it to the final video segment of “Love: The Foundation of Hope.” Again, I’ve been publishing these videos from the 1986 Trinity Institute Conference (digitized from VHS) with permission of Trinity Church. Previous segments have been: 1) Jürgen Moltmann: A Theology of Hope; 2) Theology of Hope: Critiques and Questions; and 3) Theology of Hope: The Feminist Response. This final video, Theology of Hope: The Church in the World, explores the implications of Moltmann’s thought for political theology and features conversations with Jürgen Moltmann, Douglas Meeks, and Jose Miguez-Bonino. Below the embedded video you’ll find notes from the discussion guide included in the pamphlet that came with the VHS. Enjoy! Continue reading Love: The Foundation of Hope (Part 4)

Love: The Foundation of Hope (Part 2)

Hans Frei offering a critical response to Moltmann’s views of divine power and the Trinity, in “Love: The Foundation of Hope”

This week I am sharing video segments from “Love: The Foundation of Hope” – a 1986 Trinity Institute Conference which was held in honor of the lives and work of Jürgen Moltmann and his wife Elisabeth Moltmann-Wendel. Highlights from this conference were distributed on a VHS tape designed for individual or group study at local churches (apparently) as a companion to a book published under the same name. I’ve obtained permission from Trinity Church parish to digitize and publish the content in this tape. Each video segment is narrated by Frederic Burnham and includes conversations between Rev Leonard Freeman various theologians regarding the life and work of the Moltmanns.

The sessions are as follows: 1) Jürgen Moltmann: A Theology of Hope; 2) Theology of Hope: Critiques and Questions (this post); 3) Theology of Hope: The Feminist Response; and 4) Theology of Hope: The Church in the World. This second session includes contributions from Jürgen Moltmann, Stephen Sykes, Hans Frei, and José Miguez-Bonino! Below the embedded video you’ll find the group discussion content from the pamphlet included with the video.
