AboutRegarded as one of the most exciting thinkers of recent years in the Christian world, Harvey Cox writes out of an extensive background of study coupled with vital experiences in Christian witness. He received his A.B. degree from the University
of Pennsylvania, his B.D. from Yale Divinity School, and his Ph.D. from Harvard University. He has been actively associated with the Blue Hill Christian Center, an inner-city ministry in the Boston area, and is a leader in the civil rights movement.
He spent 1962-63 studying at the Free University of Berlin and, as an ecumenical worker for the Gossner Mission, helped to maintain two-way communication
between Christians of East and West Berlin. He is the author of the popular book, The Secular City, as well as many articles, and in 1965 became a member of the Harvard Divinity School faculty.
