Tillich Jahrbuch - July 31 deadline for proposals June 29, 2016

In the first volume of his Systematic Theology, Tillich describes his method of correlation as “a way of uniting message and situation.” He expresses a hope that both theologians and nontheological thinkers after him will find that this method helped them “understand the Christian message as the answer to the questions implied in their own and in every human situation.” (p. 8) Scholarly focus on this method in the next Tillich Jahrbuch can include 1) discussion of to what extent earlier Tillich writings incorporated this method 2) to what extent he truly follows it in his own writings, 3) assessing the influence and incorporation of this method by contemporary thinkers, and 4) evaluating its effectiveness for addressing religious issues today.

Proposals (1–2 pages double-spaced) should be sent to Mary Ann Stenger at or by July 31, 2016.
