The Courage to Be: Third Edition

Yale University Press (2014)

Originally published more than fifty years ago, _The Courage to Be_ has become a classic of twentieth-century religious and philosophical thought. The great Christian existentialist thinker Paul Tillich describes the dilemma of modern man and points a way to the conquest of the problem of anxiety. This edition includes a new introduction by Harvey Cox that situates the book within the theological conversation into which it first appeared and conveys its continued relevance in the current century. “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_ “A lucid and arresting book.”—Frances Witherspoon, _New York Herald Tribune_ “Clear, uncluttered thinking and lucid writing mark Mr. Tillich’s study as a distinguished and readable one.”—_American Scholar_ Selected as one of the Books of the Century by the New York Public Library
