Review quote

These essays are remarkably clear and well-balanced. The essayists read Tillich empathetically and acutely, noting both the prospective values in Tillich for Pentecostals as well as points of divergence and disagreement. * Reading Religion * This book does great justice to Tillich's theological legacy. It is a must read for Pentecostal theologians and Tillich scholars. . . . Highly recommended. * Choice * For Tillichians, this book enriches our context for appreciating his theology of the Spirit.Vol. 32. 2 Fall 2016 * Toronto Journal of Theology *show more
