Excellent--the kind of thing that can be read both by the religious and the non-, and really anyone who is interested in watching a quality mind at work. Niebuhr says so many smart things, and says them so attractively, that I'm a little bit in awe. ( )

Some great stuff on pastoral ministry alongside incredible, insightful cultural analysis. I was going to remove a star because of some major theological problems—sacraments, Christology, general 19th century liberal theology trendiness—but it really is a great and accessible and helpful book. ( )
