In this classic and deeply insightful book, one of the world’s most eminent philosophers describes the dilemma of modern man and points a way to the conquest of the problem of anxiety.
Paul Tillich (1886–1965), world-renowned philosopher and theologian, taught in several German universities until he was dismissed in 1933 because of his opposition to the Nazi regime. In America he was affiliated with the Union Theological Seminary, Harvard University, and the University of Chicago.
Mort Crim (narrator) is the winner of the prestigious Audie Award (Audio Publishers Association). He is a former television news anchor in Chicago, Philadelphia, and Detroit. He was the inspiration for Will Ferrell's 'Ron Burgundy' in the films, Anchorman and its sequel.
“Were I to choose the most significant book in religion published in the second half of the twentieth century, my choice would fall easily upon Paul Tillich’s The Courage to Be.”
—Peter J. Gomes, Plummer Professor of Christian Morals and Pusey Minister in The Memorial Church, Harvard University
“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
