In this essay, the views of Tillich and Buber are discussed as a way to understand the idea of a personal relationship with God. Tillich assumes an existential perspective, such that God is an essential part of Being and so an aspect of a relationship with our own human essence. Buber advocates a social relationship as a moral faith in others, so that an I-Thou relationship is a manifestation of a relationship with God. Neither theologian argue for omnipotent authority in faith, but instead propose that humanity is best actualized through moral faith in ourselves, and in others.
