The Trinity and the Kingdom: The Doctrine of God
"An excellent introduction to the prophets and the prophetic literature . . . The goal of the book is to understand the thought of the prophets in their historical contexts, and to communicate that understanding for our time. Its approach, while innovative, builds upon he best of contemporary analysis of the prophetic literature." --Gene M. Tucker Candler School of Theology Emory University "Koch's first volume on the prophets of ancient Israel displays his sound and creative scholarship and will fill a bibliographical gap.He displays the individuality of each prophet with perceptive insight, but he also compares and interrelates them in his various summaries. Furthermore, Koch relates his study of individual prophets to theological currents that have been flowing through the scholarly world in recent decades." --Bernhard W. Anderson Princeton Theological Seminary

This was my first Moltmann book and was very difficult for me the first time around. The next couple of times were a lot smoother. I think my major disappointment in this book came with the fact that I was hoping to see the Holy Spirit's role in the Trinity a bit more. From other works he has written, I understand a little better where he goes with that particular issue, but it would have been nice to be in this book.
I need to add that the first few times that I read this book I did not understand much about the Trinity through the lens of the academy. That definitely tainted my readings.
