5.0 out of 5 stars A must for any community library philosophy collection, highly recommended 15 Mar 2010
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
The work of the best resonates for years after the person themselves is gone. "Reinhold Niebuhr Revisited" is a collection of essays from many writers reflecting on the work of Reinhold Niebuhr, a renown American philosopher who has earned much acclaim and influences many writers on philosophy today. These writers offer new insights on insights, interpreting how Niebuhr's writings have shaped their own viewpoints. "Reinhold Niebuhr Revisited" is a must for any community library philosophy collection, highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars NIEBUHR, A NIHILIST? 24 May 2012
By Thomas J. Bieter - Published on
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.
