Boundaries of Belief

"Boundaries of Belief," Commentary, March 1949. (A review of The Protestant Era by Paul Tillich.)


These eighteen essays by an outstanding Protestant thinker are so compact and significant that they require extended commentary and criticism. All that can be done in this brief review is to point to some of the leading themes and the way they are used. Actually there is only one theme: “The first element in Protestantism is and must always be the proclaiming of the human boundary situation.”
