Abstract:

The author argues that Tillich is an uncompromising atheist who quite deliberately concealed the real substance of his message in an analogical code that enabled him, like Saint Paul, to be "all things to all men". This calculated ambiguity protected his standing in the Church, allowing him to undermine from within. According to the author, Tillich held that Protestantism should change fundamentally in response to the gap beween tradition and what modern man can believe. Faced with a disquieting spiritual emptiness after his own loss of faith, Tillich sought and found a new truth with which to fill the void. By guarding this truth from all but a few able to accept it, he hoped to lead individual Christians to whatever levels of religious sophistication they were capable of reaching.
