The Depths of Life: Paul Tillich’s Understanding of God
By author: Duane Olson
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: P594
ISBN: 9780881467260
Availability: In stock
Price: $25.00
Throughout his work, Paul Tillich critiqued the traditional monotheistic idea of God as a being alongside the world with definable properties, and he sought to replace this idea of God and the God-world relationship with another one. He regarded this replacement as vital for establishing a believable Christian theology, a relevant philosophy of religion, and a mutually beneficial understanding of the relationship between religion and contemporary culture. In this work of philosophy of religion geared to the non-expert, Olson explains Tillich's idea of God and the God-world relationship, showing how, for Tillich, God is both infused throughout the world and transcendent of it.

The expansion of human knowledge that springs from the inquiries of science can become a profound resource for our faith traditions. We need not choose between faith and reason as the rejection of reason often leads to a failure of faith. The high calling of the scientific community is to bring the realities of our universe into sharper focus. Our faith traditions enable us to discern meaning and understanding in our lives that cannot be realized by examining facts alone. Both the knowledge we are gaining from science along with the deep insights that we gain from our faith stories provide light and encouragement for navigating our human journeys.

Volume III brings together important texts of Walter Rauschenbusch, most significantly an unpublished book, "Christianity Revolutionary" first begun in 1891/92. This text was published under another title and with significant modifications. Here is the original, unaltered text for the first time. In addition, this volume contains Rauschenbusch's last major work, A THEOLOGY FOR THE SOCIAL GOSPEL (1917). This answered the call for a serious theological underpinning of the social gospel. The most extensive bibliography for Walter Rauschenbusch has been assembled in this volume. It includes a first-ever listing of archival resources from North American and European collections that will suggest and enable further investigation of Rauschenbusch.
