Reinhold Niebuhr

Robert McAfee Brown, editor

Yale University Press, 1986

Edited by a former Niebuhr student, this anthology of the most influential American theologian of the 20th century has found new readers in the 21st.  Niebuhr was a professor of Bonhoeffer's at Union Theological Seminary in New York City, 1930-1931.

“This collection, which brings together Niebuhr’s most penetrating and enduring essays on theology and politics, should demonstrate for a new generation that his best thought transcends the immediate historical setting in which he wrote. . . . [Brown’s] introduction succinctly presents the central features of Niebuhr’s life and thought.”—Library Journal
