Groothuis on Tillich

I have reviewed Paul Tillich's Dynamics of Faith at Amazon. Why do I do these strange things? I read the book over thirty years ago.

I haven't read any of Tillich yet, but it seems to me that any of these Neo-Orthodoxy proponents do more theological circus tricks (like redefining terms and doctrines) than propose any substantive progress in theological discourse.

I think that often times they look forward in a theologically progressive manner, whose "ultimate concern" is a quasi-Darwinian (if I can connect these two concepts) notion of progress.... we'll figure it out one day. (And ignore what is already there in front of us)

Instead of looking forward through our own autonomous reasoning, perhaps we should look back through the living Tradition of the Church and the workings of the Spirit.
