Alan Wolfe has a very smart, concise review of a book about Reinhold Niebuhr by John Patrick Diggins, published posthumously after Diggins untimely death in 2009. Wolfe, who is a careful thinker and writer, clarifies some of the ways that Niebuhr is invoked carelessly by those with a political agenda. Well worth the read.
