Biography[ edit ] After a stint in the U. He went on to earn a B. Cox was ordained as an American Baptist minister in , and started teaching as an assistant professor at the Andover Newton Theological School in Massachusetts. He then began teaching at the Harvard Divinity School in and in became a full professor.

He was to become "the single most heeded professor in religion at Harvard. It became immensely popular and influential for a book on theology, selling over one million copies. Cox developed the thesis that the church is primarily a people of faith and action, rather than an institution.

He argued that "God is just as present in the secular as the religious realms of life". In , a twenty-fifth anniversary edition of The Secular City was published.

Cox retired in September in a well publicized ceremony and celebration. His new book, The Future of Faith was released to coincide with his retirement. Then came the Age of Belief, in which church leaders increasingly took control and set acceptable limits on doctrine and orthodoxy. But the last 50 years, Cox contends, welcome in the Age of the Spirit, in which Christians have begun to ignore dogma and embrace spirituality , while finding common threads with other religions.

In "How to Read the Bible" , Cox shows how three different ways of approaching the Bible, the narrative the stories , the historical the academic , and the spiritual personal and social can be reconciled as a contemporary source of enrichment for all. Press 3rd edition

Found this book incredibly thought-provoking though, as I bounced between arguing with some rather ridiculous statements and finding some real gems of understanding the chapter on gender and sexuality was particularly strong, as an example from near the end of the book. There were some places that seemed interesting exceptions to this perspective, but I wonder if he was simply using the common language of Christians without the same underlying understanding. If I ever get around to rereading some of the books that I think particularly deserve that attention, this will be among them. Its been a much discussed question in recent years, particularly with the rise of the metro-evangelicals and a fresh focus on reaching the cities of the world. Leading figures such as Tim Keller have given a great deal of thought to the gospel and the city. Yet long before the reformed crowd spoke of cities, contextualisation and the urban context of the gospel, there was The Secular City: Secularization and Urbanization in Theological Perspective by Harvard How should Christians view the city?

The Secular City: Secularization and Urbanization in Theological Perspective

It is nearly twenty years since Harvey Cox, a professor at the Harvard Divinity School, became a sensation among liberal theologians with the publication of The Secular City. In that book, he celebrated the advent of secular urban civilization and the retreat of traditional Christianity. As Cox himself pointed out, there was nothing new in this acclaim for the secular epoch. The ground had been prepared years before by German theologians, particularly Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
