The Crucified God: The Cross of Christ as the Foundation and Criticism of Christian Theology
Arguably the most powerful of Moltmann's books. The Crucified God is a seminal work on the crucifixion and its significance. The book takes death despair and dreadfulness the dark side of the human condition with total seriousness and relates these to a liberating hope of redemption through divine agony and suffering. Influential for many years, especially with political and liberation theologians, but also much more widely, the book represents a concentrated blast of hard-edged doctrinal reflection and - now reissued with a Preface by the author's leading British interpretor - will continue to inspire upcoming generations who take seriously the life-changing notion that 'God was in Christ.'

An excellent study on what it means that Jesus didn't just die bit was crucified and why that was crucial to the message he brought to earth. The book is a very difficult to read being dense with jargon and wandering side tangents. Read full review
