|Title:||The Relevance of Biblical Criticism to the Christology of Paul Tillich's Systematic Theology, Volume Two|
|Authors:||Palmer, Michael F.|
|Abstract:||<p>The emergence of historical consciousness and refined forms of historical criticism have created a special problem for religions, especially those such as Christianity for whom claims about particular historical events play a crucial role. The issue is how faith and doctrine can rest upon a contingent foundation whose very existence is subject to the radical and ever-shifting results of historical-research. The author studies Paul Tillich as a man who has met this problem head-on. While the study focuses on Tillich's Systematic Theology, he describes the wider context in which Tillich's work is conceived. The study concludes with a statement and criticism of Tillich's way of resolving the tension between historiography and theology.</p>|
