among Heaven and Earth grew out of 1 of Thielicke's visits to the USA within which he travelled around the state preaching and lecturing.

His procedure is refreshingly open and his conclusions emerge from a reasoned attention of the facts and substitute chances. chiefly, Thielicke's solutions display the heat and deep difficulty for mankind's non secular welfare that's on the root of his instructing and writing.
