Helmut Thielicke was one of the most read and most listened-to theologians of this century. He did not belong to Protestantism alone; his works are still closely followed in Catholic theology, discussed in dissertations and reviews and published widely internationally. These memoirs reflect on life, death and suffering. Thielicke introduces those he considered his friends and acquaintances: Karl Barth, Konrad Adenauer, Romano Guardini, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Eduard Spranger, Theodore Heuss and Helmut Kohl. Thielicke was a witness to many of the most significant events of this century; he experienced the Kaiser period, the Weimar Republic, the rise of the Third Reich, a divided Germany and the tumultuous 1960s.Über den Autor:
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.
