Tom Berg Presents: "Obama's Theologian"
You can listen to (en edited version of) the Georgetown gathering this week on public radio's SPEAKING OF FAITH With Krista Tippet (here). Check your local listings; the show plays in different locales on different days and at different times.
Obama's theologian, of course, is Reinhold Neibuhr. One of the best scholarly interpreters of Niebuhr's "Christian relaism"--perhaps the best--is Robin Lovin, whose new book is available in paperback: Christian Realism and the New Realities (Cambridge 2008) (here).
