Description
Summary:Contrary to the image of great thinkers working in splendid isolation, two of the giants of twentieth century religious thought had a sustained and deep fr iendship. Martin Buber and Paul Tillich met in Germany in religious socialist circles in the early twentieth century. Over the ensuing decades they wrestled with the same profound theological questions, and the influence they had on each other may well be recognized in each man's oeuvre. They entered a deep religious conversation that transcended the ideological particularism of each man's own tradition, and left us an example of the profoundest kind of dialogue.
