This article analyzes Reinhold Niebuhr's The Nature and Destiny of Man. The book does a great deal to make clear the complex interweaving of political, moral, and theological ideas that shaped all of Niebuhr's insights. Tracing those underlying themes provides a starting-point for a twenty-first-century Christian realism.
