What is it about?

This article concentrates on Jürgen Moltmann’s elaboration of time and space, which constitute a hermeneutical key when talking about the new creation. It presents a general survey of Moltmann’s concept of time and space, and critically evaluates the doctrine of zimzum, the dialectic of time and eternity, and the view on limited and omnipresent space which influences Moltmann’s view on the new creation. In my approach I argue extensively that the time and space of creation will not change into the infinite free time and space of God, but they will border on it, and thereby be connected and separated by it.
