'the curious fact that … the Lord always puts us on the just side': Reinhold Niebuhr, America, and Christian realism
Stellenbosch University, Theological Faculty, Stellenbosch, South Africa.
2012 (engelsk)Inngår i: Studia Theologica, ISSN 0039-338X, E-ISSN 1502-7791, Vol. 66, nr 1, s. 41-61Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert) Published
Abstract [en]

Theologian Reinhold Niebuhr has had and still has an exceptionally large influence on American political thinking. The nation-state, in his case primarily the USA, was throughout his career both the main context and the primary object for his thinking. Christian faith, he thinks, is validated by its ability to interpret human reality, including the world of nations. However, this article argues that Niebuhr fails to show the descriptive power of Christian faith. This has to do with both an inadequate understanding of theological rationality and a weak ecclesiology.
