E 160 Reinhold Niebuhr Reconsidered (2011)


Reinhold Niebuhr is remarkable in being a theologian who has had wide influence on politicians and political thinking. But he is also not without his notable critics.

This masterly survey explores the key contours of his thought, engages with criticisms, and contends that we have much to learn from him in current discussions about democracy and ethics.
