Paul Johannes Tillich (1886—1965) was a Christian theologian. In 20th century theology his work represents one of its five most influential schools of thought: the theology of correlation. [1] [2] This correlation is one between Christian Faith and culture: "various questions, philosophies symbols, disciplines, and worldviews." According the Oxford University-published scholar David Ford, at least one of the other four influential schools of 20th century theological thought sees Tillich's theology of correlation as "inherently unstable: there can be no neutral standpoint from which to carry on dialogues, and therefore there has to be a basic commitment either for or against Christian faith."
