The Theologian We Need Today!

In a recent column David Brooks writes that in an age of division, fragmentation and isolation, Josiah Royce is “the philosopher we need today.”  Having devoted a large portion of my book The Origins and Development of the Triadic Structure of Faith in H. Richard Niebuhr to Royce’s philosophy I won’t argue with this claim. I would only add, if Royce is the philosopher we need today, then the theologian we need today is H. Richard Niebuhr.
