Review by: Guy Hammond, The North American Paul Tillich Society - March 1, 2013
Everyone interested in the lives and careers of the two greatest American philosopher/theologians of the 20th century—Reinhold Niebuhr and Paul Tillich—will rejoice at the publication of Ronald Stone’s magnum opus, Politics and Faith: Reinhold Niebuhr and Paul Tillich at Union Seminary. Stone’s personal connections with the two great figures, and his previous publications dealing with their lives and thought, place him in an unrivaled position to review their activities and interactions in the crucial period of 1933 to 1955, when they were colleagues at Union Seminary. This work is a monumental effort that sheds new light on their perspectives, and indeed provides new insights into that whole period of American history...
...Stone’s Politics and Faith will stand alongside Richard Fox’s Reinhold Niebuhr: A Biography and Wilhelm and Marion Pauck’s Paul Tillich: His Life and Thought as an indispensable source for knowledge regarding the lives and thought of these two towering figures in 20th century philosophical theology.
