A Harvey Cox Reader, Paperback Book

A Harvey Cox Reader Paperback

Edited by Robert Ellsberg

Description

Harvey Cox, one of the most creative American theologians of the past fifty years, first attracted attention with the publication of The Secular City (1965), among the true religious classics of the 1960s and an international bestseller.

Since then, through his many books, Cox has been recognized as a keen theological observer of the religious and cultural scene, a public intellectual with a gift for mediating between the academy and a popular audience, often identifying key trends and writing about his own quests and explorations in fields ranging from interreligious dialogue, liberation theology, Jewish-Christian relations, the emergence of Pentecostalism, the changing role of Catholicism, the message of Jesus today, and the problem of faith in the modern world.

This volume includes selections drawn from his entire career, showing surprising lines of continuity, while offering an exciting example of the dialogue between faith and an-ever evolving culture.

Beginning with notes from a theological autobiography, he ends with an inspiring and challenging essay, "Why I Am Still a Christian."
