MLK Day courage King inspired by Paul Tillich Indiana

Must read

Before history intervened, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had dreams of teaching philosophy or theology, and sometimes spoke of his desire to return to the college classroom. King, the thinker, the orator, the writer was nourished by mighty intellectual streams and a steady flow of books.

One of his influences, Paul Tillich, has a unique Indiana connection with lessons for us today.

For half a century, Tillich was a major voice in Protestant theology. Born in Germany, he made a name for himself as a Lutheran pastor, a philosopher, and a public voice. 

In exile in the United States—first at Union Theological Seminary in New York, then Harvard and the University of Chicago, he mastered the English language, writing popular books on faith, theology, and philosophy.
