"The book is of appropriage length for interested undergraduates and virtually all foreign terms and phrases are translated, which are few since he purposely avoided technical terminology, but the content is also suitable for postgraduates interested in a brief theological understanding of hope and eschatology, and the book might especially be welcome for those searching for a suitable entree into Moltmann's thought. Owing to the fact that the chapters were conceived as occasional pieces, one could read only the topically relevant chapter(s) and not lose the overall flow of the work." Ryan A.Neal, University of Edinburgh, REVIEWS IN RELIGION AND THEOLOGY, April 2005.
"This little book deserves attentive reading from both the general reader and the scholar, as well as providing a useful way into the thinking of J.Moltmann for those who are unfamiliar with it." Dr A.A.K. Graham. CHURCH TIMES
"This is a book about Christian hope; so it was appropriate reading in the aftermath of the Asian tsunami, and during the remembrance of Auschwitz. Does Moltmann's thinking about hope have anything hopeful to say about these two terrible happenings? Directly, no; but indirectly, a great deal. (...)The book is intended for a wide readership, and is not an academic work like God in Creation or The Crucified God; but it is a serious piece of scholarship, and it is a good but not an easy read." Philip Crowe, Oswestry, THEOLOGY, Sept/Oct 2005.
