Two generations of clergy have grasped this book as a manual of arms, a book of consolation, an example for imitation . . . Niebuhr here is the small town member of a provincial church body finding his way in the jostling metropolis of Detroit, cutting a path beyond parachialism into ecumenical and interfaith relations. No one prepres a ministry-bound child for such transitions, and theological schools at best talk about them from a distance. here is someone nurtured in conservative Protestantism having to deal with labor leaders, civic professionals, and men and women who share little of his regard for the cross of Jesus Christ.
Renowned theologian Reinhold Niebuhr began his career as pastor of Bethel Evangelical Church in Detroit, Michigan, where he served from 1915-1928. "Leaves From the Notebook of a Tamed Cynic" is Niebuhr's account of the frustrations and joys he experienced during his years at Bethel. Addressed to young ministers, this book provides reflections and insights for those engaged in the challenging yet infinitely rewarding occupation of pastoral ministry. Niebuhr's powerful book remains as useful and relevant today as it was eighty years ago.
