The New Being Synopsis

These twenty-three meditations on key passages from the Bible were originally delivered as addresses at colleges and universities. They are short, powerful, and persuasive examinations of the effect of God's love on the life of the believer and the challenges of living the New Creation- the infinite passion of every human being. Tillich scholar Mary Ann Stenger provides a new introduction for this edition.

The New Being Press Reviews

Although he has earned a reputation as a profound theologian, the author demonstrates in this small collection of sermons his ability to simplify the Christian message for the common reader. -Booklist * Booklist * These addresses combine enormous learning, simply presented, with a profound awareness of the `existential situation' of modern man, especially in the Western world. They are based on a deep Christian faith, but they present that faith in a new and compelling idiom. They will repay reading and rereading. -New York Times Book Review * New York Times Book Review * This is great evangelical Protestant Christian preaching, all of it. Controversial, happily, but never commonplace and always colorful, compelling. -Christian Century * Christian Centruy *
