About the Author:

Paul Tillich (1886–1965) was a world-renowned philosopher and theologian. Harvey Cox is Hollis Research Professor of Divinity at Harvard University.

Review:

"The brilliance, the wealth of illustration, and the aptness of personal application . . . make the reading of these chapters an exciting experience."—W. Norman Pittenger, New York Times Book Review
"Paul Tillich is the most profound theologian of post-fundamentalist religion. As Harvey Cox makes clear in his new introduction, this book is a classic awaiting re-discovery by a new generation."—Tom F. Driver, The Paul J. Tillich Professor of Theology and Culture Emeritus, Union Theological Seminary in New York
"The Courage to Be changed my life. It also profoundly impacted the lives of many others from my generation. Now Harvey Cox's fresh introduction helps to open up this powerful reading experience to the current generation."—Robert N. Bellah, University of California, Berkeley
"The essential character of courage, for Tillich, is 'in spite of.' We must go on striving for freedom, justice, and our faith in spite of oppositions. In this age of late capitalism, globalization, and terrorism, we all need the virtue of courage as Harvey Cox admirably argues in the foreword."—Nimi Wariboko, Andover Newton Theological School, Newton Centre, MA
"Tillich struggled with the existential question how we may overcome the demoralizing effects, on the individual and society, of our Age of Anxiety. In this, his most popular book, Tillich gives us his deeply thought answers, and Harvey Cox provides a helpful new introduction."—Gerald Holton, Harvard University
