This chapter describes Heschel's growing prominence within the American Protestant community. Heschel's authority as a spiritual voice had grown, reinforced by articles in Time magazine, responses to God in Search of Man, his participation at interfaith conferences, and his invited articles. In 1956, he published “The Biblical View of Reality” and “A Hebrew Evaluation of Reinhold Niebuhr” in essay collections. Two years later, “Sacred Images of Man” appeared in the journal Religious Education and “The Religious Message” in John Cogley's edited volume Religion in America. The Union Seminary Quarterly Review published Heschel's talk on “Prayer and Theological Discipline” in 1959. With the publication of The Prophets late in 1962, Heschel's biblical theology became required reading in many Protestant seminaries.
