This classic little book for new and experienced theologians alike offers wise counsel on the difficulties — and vital importance — of maintaining one’s spiritual health in the course of academic theological study.
Since the book’s first appearance in English translation in 1962, thousands of beginning theological students have had the opportunity to eavesdrop, as it were, on the opening lecture of a theological seminar by one of the twentieth century’s leading Christian thinkers, Helmut Thielicke. More experienced pastors and theologians have also returned to it again and again for the valuable insights that Thielicke brings to bear on their vocation.
