Macquarrie’s theology is somewhat outdated, but will speak significantly to those interested in existentialism and/or epistemology. Where Tillich mirrors Sarte in a religious way, Macquarrie does so more with Heidegger. He then proposes a symbolic interpretation of theology which offers an interesting, albeit restated, contribution to contemporary religious epistemology. A good systematic theology, natural companion to Tillich.
