This study sets forth the theological basis which provides the foundation for Jürgen Moltmann's call for social and political transfo­rmation. Jürgen Moltmann, professor of Systematic Theology at the University of Tubingen since 1967, has come to be identified as the major proponent of political theology. He advocates a critical role for theology against injustices within society. His thoughts are generally oriented toward social and political transformation as a response to the Christian faith.
