Today I stumbled upon this recent video of Jürgen Moltmann published by the Yale Center for Faith and Culture. It was recorded in New York at a private consultation that took place in June directly after Moltmann’s participation at the Barth Conference. The topic of this project is “God and Human Flourishing” and the essay delivered by Moltmann was titled “Expectation and Human Flourishing.” Enjoy!
For Moltmann’s previous contribution to a previous YCFC event on Theology of Joy, see Moltmann’s essay here and his corresponding interview with Miroslav Volf here.
Apparently, the theme here on Moltmanniac this week is Moltmann audio (see here, here, and here)!
In October 2001, Jürgen Moltmann delivered a series of lectures at Nazarene Theological Seminary. I became aware of them a while back because several blog posts and pages (like this one) linked to the media files… but by the time I got to them, the links were dead! When I contacted NTS about the possibility of finding these files, I was informed that they were forever lost…. However, I could obtain cassette tapes from their library. This week, I’ve been working on digitizing these tapes, which you can now listen to below or download. I’ve spot checked some of this audio, but have not listened to it all yet. If you find any issues with the files please let me know! Continue reading Jürgen Moltmann 2001 Grider-Winget Lecture Series at NTS (Audio)
Yesterday I shared some audio from Princeton Theological Seminary from when professor Moltmann delivered his historic Warfield lectures in 1979 on the Trinity. A few years earlier (1976), he delivered a different series of lectures at PTS on a variety of topics that are also available for free download. I’ve started listening to the audio from both collections – the quality is very good, and it has been a delight to hear for the first time a much younger Moltmann (easily 30 years younger than in any other lecture I’ve heard). I’m finding these to be unusually engaging for academic theology lectures. He is witty and even self depreciating at points, and (judging from the laughter) he clearly had the audience on the edge of their seats despite his German English.
