Reviews

". . . a careful account of Niebuhr's perspective emerges from Primeaux's analysis. This is available nowhere else, and I strongly recommend Primeaux's book not only to those interested in Niebuhr's thought but also to those concerned about major options in contemporary theology." - Douglas F. Ottati in The Journal of Religion

". . . well-written and highly instructive . . . . [Primeaux] writes with insight, discipline, clarity, and sympathy. Recommended for the library of every seminary and graduate school of theology." - Choice
