Midgley certainly has a long standing burr under his butt about Tillich. However given his personal life and even what he wrote I have a hard time finding much value in Tillich. (What I like in Tillich I can usually get better by just reading Heidegger)

Even "ultimate concern" in Tillich I have trouble with. Interestingly Dennis Potter brought that up in the Mormon Stories debate about whether the Mormon concept of God is problematic. I'm not sure, however, that even within Mormonism God *should* be our ultimate concern the way Tillich sees it. (Further I'd say Tillich's ultimate concern is really Being and not God at all)
