The Courage to be


Publisher writes

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 foreword by Harvey Cox that situates the book within the theological conversation from which it first emerged and conveys its continued relevance in the current century. It is selected as one of the Books of the Century by the New York Public Library.

Judges' and contributors' comments

Mark Oakley: I was very influenced by Tillich’s method of correlation at university and inspired by his taking of art seriously theologically. Though highly criticized by today’s academic trends, this book’s exploration of our deepest anxieties still stands.
