About the Author:

Wilhelm Pauck (1901-81) studied with Harnack and Troeltsch at the University of Berlin and became the first foreign student at the University of Chicago in 1925. He joined the faculty in 1926 and was made full professor of Church History in 1931. After twenty-seven years at the University of Chicago, he taught at Union Theological Seminary in New York. After retirement in 1967, he taught at Vanderbilt University and at Stanford University. Marion Hausner Pauck was born in New York City in 1928. She studied at Friends Seminary, Barnard College, and Union Theological Seminary. She earned an MA and studied for a ThD, but then accepted a position at Oxford University Press in New York, where she worked for ten years as editor of religious books. She resigned in order to do research on the biography of Paul Tillich. She has lectured in the United States and western Europe on Reinhold Niebuhr, Wilhelm Pauck, and Paul Tillich.

Review:

''Many of us have been waiting a long time for this truly definitive life of Paul Tillich. The wait has been worth it. The Paucks have recreated the many-sided 'Paulus' for us in all his greatness and humanness. And they have done so with erudition, care, and love.''
--Robert McAfee Brown

''Not only have the Paucks given an absorbing account of the development of the man, but they have provided as well an excellent model of biographical research.''
--America

''A moving tribute to one of this century's important figures.''
--Publishers Weekly

''A soberly objective portrait, aggressively supported by Tillich himself, who hoped that the full telling of his story would set in context its unconventional aspects (especially the eroticism revealed in books by Hannah Tillich and Rollo May) and thus prevent their undermining his intellectual achievement.''
--Kirkus Reviews --Wipf and Stock Publishers
