Product Description


This transatlantic collection focuses more narrowly on Neibuhr's political importance, though the essats support the subtitle's implicit claim that Neibuhr's politics are not properly understood without some reference to his theology. (Eric Biddy, Meadvill Lombard Theological School)

HASH(0x92cf8eac) out of 5 stars NIEBUHR, A NIHILIST? 24 May 2012
By Thomas J. Bieter - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I have not read this book, so this is really just a comment, but I have recently read the excellent work Why Niebuhr Now? by the late historian John Patrick Diggins. Why Niebuhr Now?

I recently read The Pragmatic God - On the Nihilism of Reinhold Niebuhr, The Pragmatic God (American University Studies. Series VII. Theology and Religion) a book that, strangely, has been universally ignored by scholars in history, philosophy, and religion. Ausmus contends that the logical consequence of Niebuhr's thought is nihilism, a rather serious charge to lodge against a Christian theologian and preacher.

Why has this work, published in 1990, been ignored?

I suspect that Niebuhr scholars and others fear that accepting the challenge to examine Ausmus' thesis may just disclose some nihilism in their thought.
