"Intelligent and orthodox, subtle and strong, 'God as the Mystery of the World' is a masterpiece which should at last make its author as familiar in the English-speaking world as he has long deserved to be." - Geoffrey Wainwright "Jungel sets out in this work to establish a basis for a theology of God the crucified while avoiding the shoals of theism and atheism. He warns of the danger, rooted in the fact that modernity no longger dares to think God, of talking God to death, of silencing God with too much God-talk. He analyzes what our possibilities are of thinking and speaking God and concludes that theology has to become the narrative of God's humanity, told like every love story. . . . This is a stimulating but demanding book. It helps theology move forward again in its quest really to say what it talks about when it talks about God." - H. M. Rumscheidt"
