God in Creation 1984–1985

Jurgen Moltmann

Summary

Table of Contents

Abstract

JŁrgen Moltmann seeks to articulate a doctrine of creation for humanity that centers upon Godís creating and sustaining activity within the world. Recent ecological destruction illustrates clearly the impact humanity has upon the world, and Moltmann advocates that humanityís understanding of Godís relationship with the world must be understood to clarify an ecological doctrine of creation that nurtures life and the created world. Moltmann investigates time, eternity, space, human uniqueness and evolution, and scientific advancements to understand the created world and the role of humans within the created world. Using the biblical instruction concerning Godís creative action and role of the sabbath, Moltmann constructs a theology of creation that recognizes the participation of the triune God through the Spiritís active presence within the world while at the same time fostering humanityís respect for the created earth through an adoration of the triune God.
KEY WORDS: Creation, Evolution, Sabbath, Ecology, Panentheistic, Messiah, Immanence, Domination, Imago Dei, Heaven, Eschatology, Cosmic Spirit, Creator Spirit
