    Niebuhr has always had a strong interest in politics. Many of his books articulate a realistic Christian interpretation of the realm of war and the state. He was a prominent defender of just war theory, and his writings influenced many politicians and presidential cabinet members in the last half of the 20 th century. A book that one can barely escape reading on the way to earning a seminary degree is Christ and Culture, by H. Richard hed in , the book quickly became a classic. Its categories -- such as "Christ against culture" and "Christ of culture" -- have ever since been familiar reference points in the field of Christian ethics and in debates about how Christians and the church should.

    Take, for instance, Niebuhr on the Eschaton. Using a distinction found in the work of the philosopher of language Wilbur Urban, we can say that Niebuhr viewed the eschatology of the Book of Revelation as an evocative “symbolic truth,” at the center of which is “the truth of the symbol.”. In our own era it’s unthinkable that a theologian would write one of the indispensable books on American foreign policy. But at nearly the exact midpoint of the last century, the Christian thinker Reinhold Niebuhr’s classic The Irony of American History took the measure of not only America’s role in the emergent Cold War but also its sense of mission in the world.
