Harvey Cox retired from Harvard in September 2009 as the ninth person to hold the Hollis Chair of Divinity which, established in 1727, is the oldest endowed professorship in American higher education.
From one reviewer: “Dr. Cox has been interested in religion, culture and politics throughout his career. His 1965 book, The Secular City sold a million copies. That book painted the church as a people of faith and action, not an institution. In The Future of Faith, Cox describes the church as entering a totally new era now, the Age of the Spirit. In this exciting new time, different cultural backgrounds will add new life to the church; a prophetic vision of social justice will challenge structures of power and oppression.”
