Paul Tillich and Religious Socialism

Towards a Kingdom of Peace and Justice
  • By Kirk R. MacGregor
Product Description
Paul Tillich and Religious Socialism: Towards a Kingdom of Peace and Justice argues that the Kingdom of God--the reign of God over all human affairs via God's manifestations in love, power, and justice--can be fragmentarily achieved through a religious socialism that creatively integrates the early Tillich's socialist thinking with later insights throughout Tillich's theological career and with contemporary developments in just peacemaking. The resulting religious socialism is defined by economic justice and a recognition of the sacred reality in all human endeavors. It employs Christianity to furnish the necessary depth for warding off materialism and affirming the spiritual dimension of both labor and acquiring material goods. The unbridgeable Marxist chasm between expectation and reality is bridged through new being, already historically inaugurated in the Christhood of Jesus. New being is fundamentally oriented toward bringing justice to the poor, the disenfranchised, and the marginalized. It affirms the individual and equal value of all persons and thus, in Kantian terms, promotes a kingdom of intrinsically worthwhile ends rather than a kingdom of instrumentally worthwhile means of things.
