Abstract:
Chapter 1 - The basis of Moltmann’s eschatology is explored and developed with its specific relationship to the moral impact it has within Christian theology at the forefront of the discussion. Chapter 2 - Moltmann’s primary category for discussing eschatology and its specific ethical import is ‘the Kingdom of God’ and is thus explicated in further detail within this chapter. Chapter 3 - This discussion of the Kingdom of God is then deepened with an analysis of Moltmann’s pneumatology.  In particular, the role of the Spirit in vivifying human moral action in the Church and in society is examined within eschatological perspective. Chapter 4 - The above argument is then interpreted in light of the Christian claim that God is Triune as the persons Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Chapter 5 - Beginning with this chapter, the preceding doctrinal concerns will be brought to bear on systematic consideration of time and space as it particularly relates to Christian moral action. Chapter 6 - Here the particular location of the human within God’s eschatological work in the promissory history as explicated in Moltmann’s theology is explored. Chapter 7 - the argument moves beyond theological theory to praxis within the specific realm of global economics.  After analyzing three recent theological proposals for economic engagement in the life of the church, the above theological description of an ethics of hope will be brought to bear on this issue and critique the three proposals.
