The Promise of Reinhold Niebuhr

  • By Gabriel Fackre
Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971) -- whom President Barack Obama famously named as his -favorite philosopher- in a 2007 interview -- was arguably the most influential American theologian of the twentieth century. Gabriel Fackre's Promise of Reinhold Niebuhr has long provided a compact introduction to Niehbuhr's life and thought.
With Niebuhr's enduring legacy again rising to prominence in political and religious circles, Fackre has reworked his standard account of this iconic -visionary realist- for a new generation. In this revised and updated third edition, Fackre crystallizes key themes in Niebuhr's writings, addresses and debunks -Tall Tales- that have sprung up around Niebuhr's legacy, and applies Niebuhr's thinking to twenty-first-century theological and cultural issues.
