Rienhold Biebuhe: Makers Of The Modern Theological Mind

Arguably the most influential American theologian since Jonathan Edwards, Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971) was the one American who found a comfortable place in a modern Pantheon comprised mainly of Europeans. This volume from The Makers of the Modern Theological Mind series offers a guide to the life and theology of Niebuhr.

His doctrine of "sin as pride" has become a modern classic, and he helped many to see how "anxiety" is the matrix for both inordinate self-assertion and sensuality. Not only was he a brilliant and articulate thinker, but Niebuhr was also a deeply compassionate, sensitive human being and an ardent champion of social justice. He remains a model for us today as he teaches us how to communicate the gospel in a secular age.
