Item Description...
This classic work of H. RICHARD NIEBUHR, one of the most influential theological ethicists of the 20th century, anticipates the substance of his mature thinking. NIEBUHR provides a thorough analysis of faith as confidence and loyalty and the forms as henotheism, polytheism, and radical monotheism. He answers directly the question "How is faith in God possible?"

Publishers Description

This reissue of a classic work of H. Richard Niebuhr, one of the most influential and creative theological ethicists of the twentieth century, highlights his mature thinking. By using path-breaking interpretations of faith as a basic dimension of human life and culture as an arena of faith in conflict, Niebuhr encourages further thought. This volume should be required reading for anyone interested in recent perspectives on theology and ethics.

The Library of Theological Ethics series focuses on what it means to think theologically and ethically. It presents a selection of important and otherwise unavailable texts in easily accessible form. Volumes in this series will enable sustained dialogue with predecessors though reflection on classic works in the field.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Why no longer available online?  Oct 15, 2007
I agree with the reviewer who said this book should never have been allowed to go out of print. It speaks to an issue - what we mean when we say "God" or address "God" - that has been too long ignored by the progressive side of Protestant Christianity, a mistake that as made progressive Christianity less and less persuasive to the sons and daughters of progressive Christians.

I am also glad to see it back in print, but I have a caveat. Until recently, this book has been available free of charge to online readers at religion-online, a university-supported website with a wealth of materials reflecting the best of mid 20th century progressive theology. I had been using it in class and discovered only very recently that it has been "pulled" from availability online - coincidentally, at a time when it is finally being re-released in print. This seems odd for a book last copyrighted - according to the copyright announcement in the new edition - in 1960!! Unless large media companies have staged yet another retroactive-copyright coup in the last year, this book should have become public domain in 1988, absent any copyright renewal.

For me, this is a minor inconvenience. Although I will not have a hard copy in hand in time for my class on Thursday, having been previously content with the online book, I will purchase a copy. Before I decide whether to purchase that copy new or used, however, I'd like to know more about the relationship betwen the new print edition and the withdrawal of the online edition.

I would also like to point out that the re-enclosure of this now quite old text by copyright (or perhaps some other legal ploy) will considerably reduce the number of readers who will be exposed to it, which is a pity. Relatively few young internet-junkies probably read the whole thing online, but more of them would have read enough of it to become interested in Niebuhr online than will read it in print.
Wonderful  Apr 30, 2007
This is a wonderful book and resource for any theological library. H. Richard Niebuhr is a great theologian and helps to clarify certain points of theological doctrines.
A classic  Oct 18, 2002
This book should never have been allowed to go out of print; I am glad to see it available. The author was one of the great Christian ethicists in American history. His book, a collection of essays with overlapping themes, is still valuable. You will think about God and all the little gods we worship differently as a result of reading and thinking about this book. Also, Niebuhr has a unique, very fine writing style.
