    One thought on “The Shaking of the Foundations (Shaking of Foundations SL 30)”

    1. Wow! The Shaking of the Foundations is a great theological treasure! It contains piercing insight, inspiring meditations, illuminating Biblical interpretations and some of the most innovative, challenging and foundation-shaking theology ever written. Technically, it's a collection of sermons - a format, frankly, that is helpful in some respects and not so much in others - and not a unified/cohesive treatise, but, collectively, these ruminations on various aspects of Christian theology and mid-tw [...]

    2. Still one of my favorite books. A collection of Tillich's sermons--many of which were delivered while at Chicago Theological Seminary--that provides excellent analysis of many of the Bible's most arcane and easily-misunderstood passages, including many of Paul's letters to the early churches springing up in Turkey and Greece.

    3. I'm glad to have come to the end of this book days after finishing The Essential Tillich anthology of Tillich's work. The anthology collected writing of all kinds from all of Tillich's career. This collection is sermons alone.As sermons, pieces are much shorter than the theses found among The Essential Tillich. Furthermore, since sermons are delivered to believers, and are so brief, definitions and assumptions are necessarily leapt past to best give the centre of the argument. The definitions an [...]

    4. Religious texts are not my usual source of reading enjoyment. I started reading Tillich with an understanding that he was contemporary in his thinking and application of scripture - I was right. This particular book brings together a number of his sermons and speeches and gives a good overview of his theology. I could not fault his insights or clarity of thought. His writing is easy to read and comprehend. For those persons wanting to understand a modern theologians philosophy this would be a ve [...]

    5. Having read a couple of Paul Tillich’s books, I was looking for a more detailed account of his theological conceptions, such as of God as “the ground of being.” Tillich was much influenced by Martin Heidegger, who approached philosophy through examining what is immediately available to consciousness, although spelling this out can at times be difficult to follow. In a book of sermons, The Shaking of Foundations, Tillich could be both more personal and less technical, and therefore more acc [...]

    6. After reading so many footnotes, quotes and references pointing to Paul Tillich, I finally got around to reading one of his books. I can see why its a classic in this genre. In short but yet deep sermons he elaborates on some common biblical passages. After reading about 70% of the book, it finally began to be interesting for me. One of the challenges of sharing the gospel in a new or rather more illuminating light, is the weight of language. Especially when particular words are overused and/or [...]

    7. My favorite chapter in this book is "You Are Accepted," which is based on Romans 5:20.Sample quote: "In grace something is overcome; grace occurs 'in spite of' something; grace occurs in spite of separation and estrangement. Grace is the reunion of life with life, the reconciliation of the self with itself. Grace is the acceptance of that which is rejected." [italics in the text]

    8. I read this book by Tillich many years ago and had problems reading any Tillich years ago. He still is complex but his work is very fesh indeed for us today. I was a great book.J. Robert Ewbank author "John Wesley, Natural Man, and the 'Isms'"

    9. These sermons are so affirming and readable! I checked out a copy from the library to read for class, and after reading just two of the sermons, I raced to to buy a copy for myself. (I was SO tempted to mark all over the margins.)

    10. I read the title sermon, The Shaking of the Foundations. It is about the existential threat of nuclear missiles (and how they make "the end of the world" easier to imagine).

    11. A book of his sermons -- this is Tillich at his best. The title sermon is especially powerful and still relevant.

    12. This is a book I wish I had read 40 years ago. Glad to have found it now. I especially recommend this book to those who struggle with what might be a similar time of 'shaking foundations'. I can only hope that, as Tillich states in the final sermon (delivered while the scent of the ashes of the Second World War still permeated everything), we can find new life out of what feels like the death and destruction of all that we hold dear.

    13. My greatest joy in reading this selection of his sermons is Tillich's description of the suffering and fragmenting of mortals. "God is nearer than ourselves," he writes. His sermon #19, my favorite, is titled "You Are Accepted." Sin is separation and estrangement, according to Tillich. Paul serves as an examples of a life transformed.

    14. I had read Tillich's other two sermon collections before this one. I had heard this collection contained his best sermons. There is some repetition of themes between this and the other two, in terms of the escape from God, Jesus as the New Being, etc. The stand out sermons for me were the title sermon and You Are Accepted, which made me look at the concept of grace in a modern way.

    15. There is no doubt Tillich delivered powerful sermons and sharp insights in his day. I found this book of historic interest only; its leaves crackle with the dust of the past. Maybe this reflects my own journey away from belief. But I think most Christians would surely agree that a great deal of water has flown under the bridge of faith since this book was written.

    16. One of the best collections of sermons I have ever read, Tillich shows that he can communicate his complex ideas with the masses. I love this book!

    17. Serves as an accessible introduction to Tillich’s existential Lutheranism. As he writes: “The mark of real depth is its simplicity.”

    18. Rating reflects my reaction, not an innate quality of the book. I think you really need to be a Christian to get with his outlook.

    19. Tillich can be difficult to read. This collection of sermons is the place to start in order to bootstrap yourself into his world of thought.
