Reviews

"This volume will make available in one volume Wieman’s intellectual autobiography, Creighton Peden’s analysis of Wieman’s thought, and the dialogue between Wieman and Peden. These will serve as an excellent introduction to Wieman’s life and thought." - Dr. Cedric L. Hepler, North Carolina State University

“This book is invaluable, not only as a thoroughly researched introduction to the intriguing ideas of a controversial and influential theologian of the past century, but also for placing his thought in the context of importsnt theologians of our time such as Karl arth, Reinhold Niebuhr, Charles Hartshorne, and Paul Tillich.” – Prof. Donald Crosby, Colorado State University
