Description Table of Contents
Paul Tillich, forced into exile by the Nazis in 1933, settled in the United States. His many theological works and especially his three volume Systematic Theology have had a profound influence upon contemporary religious thought. This volume concentrates on the key texts and ideas in Tillich's thought. It presents the essential Paul Tillich for students and the general reader. Taylor's introductory essay and notes on the selected texts set Tillich in his historical context, chart the development of this thought and indicate the significance of his theology in the development of Christian theology as a whole. Substantial selections from Tillich's work illustrate key themes:
  • The struggle for a new theonomy
  • Protestant theology amid socialist crisis
  • In the sacred void: being and God
  • Amid structures of destruction: Christ as new being
  • Among the ambiguities of life: Spirit and churches
  • In the end: revisioning and hope
