From Our Editors

Theology of Culture draws together fifteen of Dr. Tillich's finest essays, in which a diversity of contemporary attitudes and problems is brought within the wide scope of his philosophy. His classic essay, 'The Two Types of Philosophy of Religion, ' is included here as a focal argument for closing 'the fateful gap between religion and culture, thus reconciling concerns which are not strange to each other, but have been estranged from each other.' This book makes available a selection of his previously scattered essays. For first time readers, this book brings together the grand motifs of the thought of a great theologian and philosopher.
