Come join Pastor Brent for a four-week class on the theology of Paul Tillich through his sermons. Paul Tillich’s Systematic Theology, (volumes 1-3) can be very daunting to wade through for the most ardent scholar. Incidentally, the same can be said of Karl Barth’s Church Dogmatics. But like Barth, Tillich’s theology is very approachable through his sermons. I have chosen to study Tillich for two reasons. First, like Barth, Bonhoeffer, and Niebuhr they were very much influenced by the events of World War I and responded to it by rejecting liberalism belief in “Progress.” And, yet they simply could not respond by simply regurgitating Orthodoxy. So, each of them re-interprets Orthodoxy but in a new way. Hence, the title “Neo-Orthodoxy” to explain this new trend in theology. And, secondly, Tillich’s theology paved the way for what has been termed “Progressive Christianity” by people like Marcus Borg, Shelby Spong, Diana Butler Bass and Brian Mclaren and others.
