From the Back Cover This graceful and digestible volume was called 'a little classic' by the New York Times Book Review. In it, one of the best known theologians, Tillich, explores the idea of faith in all its dimensions, defining the subject in the process. As Reinhold Niebuhr wrote in the New York Times Book Review, 'Paul Tillich is a giant among us.' 'A little classic . . . His analyses of the purely intellectual, emotional and volitional interpretations of the dynamics of faith are superbly subtle in distinguishing what is true from what is false in each position . . . Again reveals the astounding virtuosity of the man and the thinker.' ---Reinhold Niebuhr 'Tillich remains one of the very few of the very great theologians of our time. Dynamics of Faith is a good introduction for those who would like to get acquainted with him, an important clarification of his thought for those who have struggled through his earlier books and an important essay in its own right.' ---Albert C. Outler
