I just learned from the announcement in the new Bulletin of the North American Paul Tillich Society that Robert Scharlemann passed away on July 10. Scharlemann is perhaps best known for his phenomenal, standout monograph, Reflection and Doubt in the Thought of Paul Tillich and as a key former editor of the JAAR. I had the opportunity to have a few conversations with him at the AAR over the years, including lunch with him after he heard one of my papers.
The Bulletin of the North American Paul Tillich Society’s new issue (39.4, Fall 2013) features two essays of remembrance in Scharlemann’s honor by Mary Ann Stenger and Annette Neblett Evans.
