  1. Paul Tillich as Hero: An Interview with Rollo May by Eliott Wright

    Hannah (Tillich’s wife) leaves the impression Paulus was a prurient person trying to get as many women as possible into bed. This is a distortion of fact and, more seriously, a distortion of his character. Yet people want to hear and see the prurient.

  2. Paul Tillich’s Gift of Understanding by Lawton Posey

But he showed a full appreciation of the danger, as seen in the Soviet example, of turning socialism into a form of totalitarianism.
