A Creation Open to the Future: Jürgen Moltmann

 “In border zones between faith and science, when faith encounters series science it requires no defense, but only interest and curiosity.  The question about God and the question what holds nature together are not wholly divergent questions and they are not controversial.”   I will confess that Moltmann often hurts my brain and so I must read him carefully and listen attentively.  But he is always worth the effort.  He always sends me off on tangents I would never have discovered without his prompting.

Here, Moltmann insists that theology does not call into question the results of scientific research, but theology does set these results in the context of wider horizons of interpretation because theology has different questions.
