Richard Niebuhr Still has a Message for Us Today

A God without wrath brought human beings without sin into a kingdom without judgment through ministrations of a Christ without a cross.

- H. Richard Niebuhr, Describing the Protestant liberalism of the day back in 1937.

H. Richard Niebuhr, The Kingdom of God in America (Hamden Connecticut: Shoe String Press, 1956), p. 193.
