Musing on Tillich

Tillich is interesting for me. He’s just the kind of theologian who irritated Barth – reducing theology to ontology, or existential anthropology. I strongly disagree with lots of what he writes. Batsmen he nails it, he really, really nails it. He’s also just the kind of theologian who irritated Bonhoeffer – with his ideas of ultimate questions and what not. But again, when he writes about being accepted by grace, for example – wow. At the very least, it’s thought provoking, and in my opinion, at times, quite profound. More to come as I continue to read Paul Tillich.
