About-

This book shows the paradoxical mode by which Christians keep their faith in the Christian message as they relate with science. It reveals how Paul Tillich’s method of correlation helps us to understand how Christians interact with science without necessarily conflicting, separating, and dialoguing, and synthesizing with each other. It rules out natural theology but provides a non-eclectic theology of nature that frees Christians to be involved in science meaningfully and without undermining their faith.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“I am glad to encounter Dr. Amarkwei’s new book, Paul Tillich and His System of Paradoxical Correlation by Wipf & Stock Publishers. . . . I eagerly endorse the book which is, to be sure, a sign of the double convergence of Ghana and Korea as well as theology and science.”

—Park Hyung Gug, Hanil University and Presbyterian Theological Seminary, Republic of Korea



“This book, written by Dr. Charles Amarkwei, who is a promising African theologian, deeply investigates the significance of Paul Tillich’s paradoxical correlation to such an extent as to draw its implications for an issue on the relation between science and theology. . . . I hope and expect that Amarkwei’s critical analysis and elaborate argument in this book would make a great contribution not only by extending the possibility and viability of Tillich’s paradoxical correlation, but also by advancing further current ongoing discussions on the relation between science and theology.”

—Chung-Hyun Baik, Presbyterian University and Theological Seminary, Seoul, Korea



“Paul Tillich helped to shape the tenor of theological thought in twentieth-century Protestant Christianity. This book is one of only a handful in which an African theologian audaciously attempts to draw out the implications of Tillich’s thought for a context that has developed as a major hub of world Christianity. Tillich’s lessons on the paradoxes between faith and science as outlined here move significantly forward an emerging interest in the study of theology and science in Africa.”

—J. Kwabena Asamoah-Gyadu, Trinity Theological Seminary, Legon, Ghana



“With this work, Charles Amarkwei breaks the almost dead silence on the relationship between science and theology in the West Africa sub-region. I have no doubt that this book will awaken discussions on the important subject of science and theology that passes us by in theological constructions (and reconstructions) within the West Africa sub-region.”

—Joseph Obiri Yeboah Mante, General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana
