Helmut Thielicke was one of the most read and most listened to theologians of our time. In Notes From a Wayfarer, written shortly after his 75th birthday, Thielicke sets forth his memoirs from a long and full life. Without pretense or self-promotion, Thielicke introduces us to the figures whom he counted among his friends and acquaintances: Karl Barth, Konrad Adenauer, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Dwight Eisenhower, Helmut Kohl, and Jimmy Carter. Thielicke was, moreover, a witness to many of the most significant events of our century; his life history is interwoven with the Kaiser period, the Weimar Republic, the rise of the Third Reich, a divided Germany, and the tumultuous 60s. From the perspective of this single life we are afforded a broad and clear vision of the moments that have shaped the generation leading us into the 21st century.About the Author:
Helmut Thielicke is one of the most outstanding preachers and theologians of the German Lutheran Church. Dismissed by the Nazi regime from his post of Professor of Theology at Heidelberg in 1940, he came to prominence in Stuttgart where, during the worst of the bombing raids and in spite of continuing Nazi opposition, he continued to preach to a congregation of several thousand each week. After the war he served as professor and Rector at the University of Tubingen until 1954, when he accepted the post of Rector at the University of Hamburg, the first Protestant theologian to hold this position. He died in 1986.
