Reinhold Niebuhr: Leaves from the Notebook of a Tamed Cynic (LOA eBook Classic)
“Its influence may have been as great as that of his Gifford Lectures, published 14 years later; for of all his writings, Learns has had the widest reading.”—Christian Century
From 1915 to 1928, at the beginning of a career that would see him become America’s foremost theologian, Reinhold Niebuhr served as pastor of Bethel Evangelical Church in Detroit, Michigan. This deeply personal book presents his advice and insights for young ministers about the challenges and rewards of pastoral ministry. It is presented in this exclusive Library of America E-Book Classic edition with a preface by Niebuhr’s daughter, editor Elisabeth Sifton, plus a chronology of Niebuhr’s life and detailed notes.
