A Little Exercise for Young Theologians

Wise counsel on spiritual health for aspiring theologians

Eerdmans Summary

With an Introduction by Martin E. Marty

This classic little book for new and experienced theologians alike offers wise counsel on the difficulties—and vital importance—of maintaining one’s spiritual health in the course of academic theological study.

Since its first appearance in English translation in 1962, thousands of beginning theological students have had the opportunity to eavesdrop, as it were, on the opening lecture of a theological seminar by one of the 20th century’s leading Christian thinkers, Helmut Thielicke.

More experienced pastors and theologians have also returned to it again and again for the valuable insights that Thielicke brings to bear on their vocation.

Praise for A Little Exercise for Young Theologians

Harvard Divinity School Bulletin
“To recommend this little exercise as a thin book to put in the pocket of the beginner is not enough. The more seasoned theologian will return to it, and it will touch the pastor who has long since left the halls of theological learning”
