Publishers Description
This book brings together the best of the unpublished works of H. Richard Niebuhr, one of the outstanding American religious thinkers of this century. The collection includes lectures, sermons, and essays, some of which Niebuhr delivered at major universities to general audiences, and others that he prepared for circulation and discussion among colleagues at Yale and elsewhere. Contemporaneous events, religious figures, important issues in theology, and interpretations of American history and culture-all engaged Niebuhr's broad-ranging interest and revealed his concern with integrating theology and practical living. For those approaching the author's work for the first time, this volume opens the way; for readers already familiar with his concerns, it invites a deeper understanding of his theology. The collection will enrich contemporary public theological discussion, adding Niebuhr's confessionally grounded yet publicly focused voice to the conversation. Richard R. Niebuhr contributes a Foreword in which he recollects his father and offers insights from private writings, and William Stacy Johnson's Introduction orients the reader to Niebuhr's life and work, locating his writings in appropriate theological and historical contexts.

Reviews - What do customers think about Theology, History, and Culture: Major Unpublished Writings?

An objective Christian document relevant for our time  Mar 21, 2003
Although H. Richard Niebuhr is known less in America than his brother Reinhold, nonetheless Richard's theology should continue to be examined by Christians because of its timelessness. This particular collection, while not Richard's best known works or even very polished in its language at times, still imparts some warnings and insights we all need to hear. The Cole Lecture series on the "Next Steps in Theology" are somewhat outdated but general enough to have meaning for any Christian involved in theological education.

But the gems of the book are two short pieces that are memorable Christian witnesses unto themselves. "A Christian Interpretation of War" forcefully states that God is sovereign in war, regardless and often despite the intentions of its actors. Richard's objectivity is intense, and you can tell that he truly and prayerfully struggled with his own biases in order to write this work. And the epilogue on what the church does during war should be posted on every pastor's wall.

H. Richard's sermon on I Corinthians 1:18, "The Logic of the Cross," was preached at Yale Divinity School over fifty years ago and still speaks to our human tendency to ignore the cross. Richard directly confronts our desire to earn survival and to outlast our enemies. By doing so, Richard opens up the word "perishing" so that we can then understand how we are "being saved" in this moment when we have faith in the power of God through the cross. He suggests a relationship between our survival instinct and our faith that is both realistic and uplifting.
