This book presents Paul Tillich at his very best--brief, clear, stimulating, provocative. Speaking with understanding and force, he makes a basic analysis of love, power, and justice, all concepts fundamental in the mutual relations of people, of social groups, and of humankind to God. His concern is to penetrate to the essential, or ontological foundation of the meaning of each of these words and thus save them from the vague talk, idealism, cynicism, and sentimentality with which they are usually treated. The basic unity of love, power, and justice is affirmed and described in terms that are fresh and compelling.

"One of the most thoughtful analyses of a basic problem of Christian ethics which we have had in our day."--Reinhold Niebuhr "Tillich...is one among the few leading Christian theologians who have begun to write in a provocative and fresh way in areas immediately relevant to the problem of ethics."--Philosophical Review
