Abstract/Summary Those who take a correlational approach to theological interpretation of human experience seek to set up a critical conversation between the Christian heritage (Bible and theology) and creative cultural self-interpretations (philosophy, psychology, drama, art, literature, and poetry). Three of the most famous example of this approach come from Friedrich Schleiermacher, Paul Tillich, and Karl Rahner. Schleiermacher borrows central ideas from Romanticism in positing the "feeling of absolute dependence" as the essence of religion and the fundamental form of the human's relation to God. Immediate awareness or "intuition" is identified as the central dynamic in religious experience. [extract]
