On Reinhold Niebuhr
Reverend Stephen Butler Murray

One of the preeminent American ethicists of the 20th Century was Reinhold Niebuhr, who before joining the faculty of Union Theological Seminary in New York City was a pastor in Detroit for 13 years. This talk will discuss Niebuhr, focusing on his Detroit years and legacy. This month, PBS is showing a documentary called "An American Conscience: The Reinhold Niebuhr Story."
