"With this volume, Paul Tillich joins the ranks of the great Christian theologians such as Augustine of Hippo and Thomas Aquinas. . . .This volume, compiled by a noted minister and scholar, offers to the theological student, church worker, or, indeed, any serious reader struggling with the existential question, a tantalizing and illuminating introduction to perhaps the greatest mind of twentieth-century Protestant theology."—Booklist
"Church testifies to the power Tillich provides him for his pastoral work, his intellectual formulation and his personal life. He projects, quite properly, that the 'essential' Tillich can do the same for others. . . ."—Christian Century
"This book summarizes in Tillich's own words much of the best of his thought, still highly relevant today."—Library Journal
"[Church] helps Tillich speak to an audience unfamiliar with the breadth and depth of his thought."—Religious Studies Review

Paul Tillich (1886-1965) held distinguished positions at several German universities before immigrating to the United States in 1933 where he taught at Harvard University and the University of Chicago. His many publications include The Courage to Be, a three-volume treatise entitled Systematic Theology, and Theology of Culture. F. Forrester Church, Senior Minister at All Souls Church in New York City, is the author of nine books, including God and Other Famous Liberals and Lifelines.
Church has given both clergy and lay readers a good anthology of well-chosen, readable selections presenting most of Tillich's major ideas. He has arranged them to create a coherent whole and grouped them under eight sections: "Ultimate Concerns," "Symbols of Faith," "The Protestant Principle," "Addressing the Situation," "Love, Power, and Justice," "The Courage To Be," "The Future of Religions," "Living on the Boundary." This book summarizes in Tillich's own words much of the best of his thought, still highly relevant today. Recommended for public and academic libraries. Carolyn M.
