Richard Niebuhr, one of the outstanding American religious thinkers of this century. The collection includes lectures, sermons, and essays, some of which Niebuhr delivered at major universities to general audiences, and others that he prepared for circulation and discussion among colleagues at Yale and elsewhere.

Contemporaneous events, religious figures, important issues in theology, and interpretations of American history and culture-all engaged Niebuhrs broad-ranging interest and revealed his concern with integrating theology and practical living. For those approaching the authors work for the first time, this volume opens the way- for readers already familiar with his concerns, it invites a deeper understanding of his theology.

The collection will enrich contemporary public theological discussion, adding Niebuhrs confessionally grounded yet publicly focused voice to the conversation. Richard R. Niebuhr contributes a Foreword in which he recollects his father and offers insights from private writings, and William Stacy Johnsons Introduction orients the reader to Niebuhrs life and work, locating his writings in appropriate theological and historical contexts.
