    You Know Who You Sound Like?

    Apparently, I sound a lot like Paul Tillich. That's pretty good theological company, in my estimation. Tillich comes closest to expressing with words my understanding of God. I'm also glad to see good ol' Schleiermacher near the top. So, which theologian do you sound like? Take the quiz.
    --Brian
    You scored as Paul Tillich, Paul Tillich sought to express Christian truth in an existentialist way. Our primary problem is alienation from the ground of our being, so that our life is meaningless. Great for psychotherapy, but no longer very influential.

    Brian, I usually think these quizzes are silly, but I did it anyway. Moltmann topped my list. So I took a look as some things he wrote or were written about him.

    Here's the interesting thing. I found his theology of hope to be right on with some issues I've been chewing on lately, and this is working into some of my writing. This was a timely find.


    Cheers, James
