Beyond cynicism; the practice of hope,

Author: David O Woodyard
Publisher: Philadelphia, Westminster Press [1972]
Edition/Format:   Print book : English
Summary:
"[This book] affirms a definition of God as the power of the future. Drawing on the perceptions of Bonhoeffer, Moltmann, and Pannenberg, as well as Cone, Cox, and Berrigan, he says that the process of public hope is what God's promises in history have been about. We need a radical deprivatizing of the gospel so that Christianity thrusts into the arena where social forces control nd mutilate our lives."--Book cover.
