  1. Bob probably has some Tillich he can lend you. (Tillich was, yet another, Union theologian.)

  2. Well, thanks, Emily! I’ve heard the name a lot, but have never actually read any of his work. That’s true of a lot of theologians, in fact.

  3. I got Paul Tillich too and I don’t know anything about him other than I’ve heard his name before.

  4. I am 87% Anselm, 80% Martin Luther, 73% John Calvin. (Only 20% Tillich) I had trouble with the wording of a lot of questions though; especially those that made two claims, one of which I supported and the other, I opposed. Interesting bit of fun, maybe I need to read these guys if I’m going to be labeled as being like them.

  5. Stefanie — I’ve vaguely known some of his ideas, but nothing substantial; it would be good to find out now!

    Bikkuri — it was difficult to answer some of those questions. I wanted to be able to say “I don’t care” for many of them …

  6. I wouldn’t know who any of these people are, alas, but any link to existentialism, surely makes you intellectually very sound, Dorothy!

  7. Thank you Litlove :) I rather like the idea of bringing Christianity and existentialism together.
