Life after death?

Resurrected to Eternal Life: On Dying and Rising ~ by Jürgen Moltmann, translated by Ellen Yutzy Glebe, 2021, theology, 88 pages

Drawing on themes from his oeuvre's entire arc, Resurrected to Eternal Life testifies to the inner unity of his theology:  the cross, the Spirit, the kingdom, the end, and the hope that makes the end present here and now.  Seasoned readers of Moltmann will find in these pages a capstone of a lifetime of theological exploration, while those new to his thinking will find a concise entry point into his voluminous work.

I'm curious whether Moltmann thinks there is life after death.  He begins in the Foreword by referring to his 1964 book Theology of Hope, which I've read.  I blogged about this book last year (click on the title link), and I finally got around to reading it this week.
