Overview

This gift from one of the greatest twentieth-century Protestant theologians, Paul Tillich, is a collection of hopeful, realistic writings on peace from the years Tillich spent in America. Beginning in 1937, the book documents Tillich's pre-World War II hope of resistance to Hitler and moves to the time before his death in 1965, when Tillich preached frequently on hope. It includes his first public political speech in America, on anti-Semitism, essays on planning for peace, and criticism of the peace thought of John Foster Dulles and Pope John XXIII.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Stone (Pittsburgh Theological Seminary) has collected 12 of Tillich's essays on peace, three of which are lectures that have never before been published. Together they span the period from 1938 to his death in 1965 and include his final sermon. Taken as a whole, these essays represent Tillich's effort to think theologically about peace. Always a realist, Tillich warns against utopian dreams of peace on Earth. Striving for peace is a Christian duty, but true peace remains a religious hope only realizable in heaven. Stone gives a good, brief introduction with a short analysis of each essay and provides background and publishing history. He discusses the significance of each in historical context, in relationship to the other essays, and in relation to Tillich's other writings. A useful collection on a timely theme; recommended for academic and public libraries.-- C. Robert Nixon, M.L.S., Lafayette, Ind.
