    " I picked this up after my pastor mentioned Tillich one Sunday. It was the only one of his works they had at BN that week. Tillich is very dense. I found myself reading several pages before what he was discussing feel into place. It all made sense, in time. "

    " A religious discussion of courage from an existialist rather than supernaturalist point of view. Rereading this book after many years, I still have a lot to absorb. Inspirational in an intellectual rather than personal sort of way. "

    " I read this book for a class called Protestant Thought. Paul Tillich was our example of modern Protestant theology. The book was interesting in the context of the course, but I was also touched by it on a more personal level. As a person who has struggled with religious doubt, Tillich presents a compelling theological framework that includes the possibility of meaninglessness. I would recommend this book to anyone with a serious interest in theology. "

    " Interesting how as I read through more and more of the so called "great authors" I find an underlying pattern and message that is repeated over and over again. These are men and women who have journeyed deep into the darkness of the their own soul and have survived to tell the rest of us about it. To let us know that the alienation we feel is not our alone, but of all mankind when our cultural, religious, philosophical and societal safe-guards have all failed. When we stand naked and vulnerable in the presence of the vast and impersonal universe. Lo, how small is man, how insignificant our lives, and yet when we are able to pierce through this veil of solitude with the courage to just be, then we realize we are not separate but part of this Universe, we are not alienated, but literally children of the stars.
