Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book may well be Tillich's most original work. Here theology and culture really penetrate and Tillich's European background and American context really coalesce....Its publication is a theological event."--Albert C. Outler

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Jeremy Garber on August 17, 2009
Format: Paperback
An excellent introduction to Tillich's core concepts, such as religion as ultimate concern, the notion of idolatry, his survey of existentialist philosophy, and the mediation of culture and language. Especially good intro essays are "Aspects of a Religious Analysis of Culture," "The Nature of Religious Language," and "Existential Philosophy: Its Historical Meaning." Some of the collected essays seem designed merely to flesh out the volume, while others (such as Tillich's cultural comparison essays) are outdated or embarassingly provincial. Recommended reading for college philosophy and theology texts, as well as anyone seeking to grasp why Tillich's concepts are still useful (if slightly outdated) today.

A valuable, readable, diverse, and nicely edited selection from the essays of Paul Tillich, it might well be required early reading for anyone seeking "the real Christianity," to borrow a phrase from Elaine Pagels, author of "Adam, Eve, and the Serpent." The editor has done a splendid job.

My old college Latin wasn't quite up to some of the work thrust upon it in the early chapters of this book. But stay with it, the Latin disperses like an early morning fog as you get deeper into the volume. I found it very useful. Tillich is father to much of post-modern Protestant theology, it appears.... and probably uncle to a chunk of our new-age thought as well.
