Full Product Description

A new addition to the "Guides for the Perplexed" series, this new book on Tillich will analyze, clarify and connect the most central and difficult of Tillich's theological concepts. Tillich's main contribution to theology was to offer an account of the significance of human agency within the history of God's salvation of the world. Amidst the hopelessness of a world twice at war, Tillich introduced an apologetic theological approach, which he deemed a necessary counterpoint to the resulting despair of existentialism on one hand and the reaction of religious fundamentalism on the other. In order to address both the human situation and the Christian message, Tillich articulated the consonance not only between the disciplines of theology and philosophy, but also between some of their major concepts and the daily experience of them in religion and culture. The result was an approach to theology that spanned an unparalleled breadth of philosophical concepts and discussions.While some historical and contextual introduction is provided, this new "Guide for the Perplexed" is focused on analyzing, clarifying and connecting the most central and difficult of Tillich's theological concepts.We consult major works, like the "Systematic Theology", 'The Courage to Be", "Dynamics of Faith" and "The Protestant Era", but also some of Tillich's lesser known works, such as "The Interpretation of History" and his earliest writings on German philosophy. Additionally, some of the more prominent critiques of Tillich's approach help to understand the complexities of his theology.Continuum's "Guides for the Perplexed" are clear, concise and accessible introductions to thinkers, writers and subjects that students and readers can find especially challenging - or indeed downright bewildering. Concentrating specifically on what it is that makes the subject difficult to grasp, these books explain and explore key themes and ideas, guiding the reader towards a thorough understanding of demanding material.
