Format: Paperback
It is completely ludicrous that this work is out of print. It is perhaps the most important of Richard Niebuhr's books (despite the continued influence of _Christ and Culture_ and _The Responsible Self_). One of the central issues theologians wrestled with in the 20th century was the rise of historicist thought. Such thought is still with us today; it is the grounding of postmodern secularist relativism -- because we are each limited by our prejudices (shaped by our social, geographical, and temporal locations), we cannot possibly critique one another. Niebuhr was one of the first theologians in American to offer a solid theological answer; his thought still resonates today in the work of Stanley Hauerwas and others, who argue that God has entered history and that we are to join this particular history, that of Israel, Jesus, and the Church. Niebuhr tells us Christians that we should acknowledge our groundedness, our contingencies, our limitations. Only God can transcend all these differences and present us with the gift of unity. God invites all to become part of this historical movement. Niebuhr's book is a difficult read, but worth the effort.

niebuhr is more condensed than the recipe of milk in thai dishes, yet has kernels of real truth and clarity.

no run-around, no long-winds, no boring-brags

it's the real deal, in 1/10 the pages of others and with original thought (imagine!)
