Powell, Adam J. (2019) '‘A simple and warm common humanity’ : self-transcendence and restless resilience in Jürgen Moltmann’s theology.', in Biblical and theological visions of resilience. London: Routledge. New critical thinking in religion, theology and biblical studies.
This chapter seeks to identify the particular influence theologian Jürgen Moltmann’s experiences of trauma and suffering during the Second World War had on his subsequent theology of hope, before then explicating how those experiences and that theological system relate to issues of health, well-being, and resilience. Ultimately, it is argued that themes of sociality and self-transcendence link Moltmann’s writings with his experiences and permit him to offer a vision of resilience as a restless discontentment with present circumstances that manifests as ‘the strength to be human’.
