    Langdon Gilkey () taught at Georgetown University, the University of Virginia, and the University of Chicago Divinity School, where he was the Shailer Mathews Professor of Theology was the author of a number of books, including Shantung Compound, Gilkey on Tillich, and Nature, Reality, and the Sacred.   Langdon Gilkey has taught at Georgetown University, the University of Virginia, and the University of Chicago Divinity School, where he is the Shailer Mathews Professor of Theology (emeritus). He is the author of a number of books, including Shantung Compound, Gilkey on Tillich, and Nature, Reality, and the Sacred/5(4).

    One book reviewer, praising Gilkey's "fascinating, well-written, and thought-provoking" account, nevertheless refers to his analysis as "jarringly ill-conceived gibberish."6 On the other hand, readers who share Gilkey's religious beliefs may question whether his explanation is thoroughly Christian or biblical. Midway in this ambitious new theology of history, Langdon Gilkey remarks that ""perhaps the secret of method is to make the variety of category, of symbol, and of argument fit the complexity of the object of understanding."" But he finds the mystery of history so multifaceted, and hence his analysis of it becomes so involved, that few readers will have the patience or competence to profit from.

    Langdon Gilkey, one of his finest interpreters, reminds us that 'Tillich is in truth a theologian of being; but what he means by being is often misunderstood if he is not also seen as a theologian.

For the most part, the themes developed in this book are derived from Tillich, but the accent is Gilkey’s Americanized variations on those themes.

In Chapter 7, Carey discusses the concept of creation according to Tillich, Langdon Gilkey, and Sallie McFague. Although he purports to be putting these thinkers into conversation with each other, he primarily summarizes.

Paul Johannes Tillich (Aug – Octo ) was a German-American Christian existentialist philosopher and Lutheran Protestant theologian who is widely regarded as one of the most influential theologians of the twentieth century.

Tillich taught at a number of universities in Germany before immigrating to the United States inwhere he taught at Union Theological Seminary Main interests: Ontology, "Ground of Being".

But if there the self does meet God and His grace, and so surrenders to. Thirty years ago, a group of Catholic scholars responded to the radical challenges of Paul Tillich's theology in a collection of essays that was courageous and farsighted for its time.

This present collection of articles, a successor to the volume, reflects the very different religious and cultural situation that characterizes post-Vatican II theology.
