Reinhold Niebuhr Major Works on Religion and Politics

Reinhold Niebuhr: Major Works on Religion and Politics by Reinhold Niebuhr
English | 2015 | ISBN: 1598533754 | 850 pages | EPUB | 2 MB

A definitive collection of the theologian and public intellectual who was the conscience of the American Century.

"One of my favorite philosophers," remarked Barack Obama about the theologian Reinhold Niebuhr (1892--1971) in 2007. President Obama is but one of the many American political leaders--including Jimmy Carter and Martin Luther King Jr.--to be influenced by Niebuhr's writings. Throughout the Depression, World War II, and the Cold War, Niebuhr was one of the most prominent public voices of his time, probing with singular style the question of how to act morally in a fallen world. This Library of America volume, prepared by Niebuhr's daughter, Elisabeth Sifton, collects four indispensable books: Leaves from the Notebook of a Tamed Cynic (1929), Moral Man and Immoral Society (1932), The Children of Light and the Children of Darkness (1944), and The Irony of American History (1952), along with a selection of essays, sermons, lectures, prayers, including his world-famous Serenity Prayer, and writings on current events--Prohibition, the Allied bombing of Germany, apartheid in South Africa, the Vietnam War--many of which are collected here for the first time.
