|Abstract||The ventures? that Macquarrie, Bultmann, Tillich, and Rahner take in existential theology follows Heideggerian pathmarks towards the primordiality of being on the way to unconcealment, or ???????. By way of each venture,? each existential theologian assumes a specific theological stance? that utilizes an existential lens? while the former certainly grounds them fundamentally, the latter, by way of Heideggerian influences, allows them to venture? beyond traditional theological framework with the use of philosophical propositions. In an effort at explaining the relationship between humanity and God, each existential theologian examines what it means to be human, not strictly in terms of theology, but as it is tied inextricably to an understanding of the philosophy of existence: the concept of what being is.
