THE NATURE AND DESTINY OF MAN by Reinhold Niebuhr

THE NATURE AND DESTINY OF MAN

A Christian Interpretation (2 Volume Set)

By Reinhold Niebuhr

Pub Date: June 15th, 1941
ISBN: 0664257097
Publisher: Scribner

Dr. Niebuhr's mentality, the Gifford Lectureship's importance, and the nature and destiny of man's scope put this volume beyond this critic. Volume II is to be published this year, and the set will comprise a Christian interpretation of man's nature, the subject of the author's Gifford Lectures. This is deep, interesting and progressive, though it more than delves into the past, it also illumines the present, and to everyone intelligent enough to be intrigued by the title, the subject matter will prove fascinating reading (although we'll wager even the intelligentsia will need an up-to-the-minute dictionary close at hand). To the student of philosophy, theology, sociology, etc., the study of these volumes will prove a delight. Keep the names of purchasers of the present volume and take orders for Volume II.
