Spirituality: Jurgen Moltmann

The all-powerful God goes outside of himself and enters into a relationship with a people of his choosing. He places his complete interest in his covenant with his people. Hence he is affected by the experiences, actions, and suffering of Israel. God takes humans seriously to the point that he suffers from human actions and can be injured through them. God's wrath is nothing less than his wounded love and a pain that cuts to the heart. His wrath is therefore an expression of enduring care for humans.
