The Christian Realists

The Christian Realists Reassessing the Contributions of Niebuhr and his Contemporaries Eric Patterson

The Christian Realists investigates the contributions to practical and theoretical politics by a variety of mid-twentieth century thinkers such as Reinhold Niebuhr, John Foster Dulles, and Herbert Butterfield. In a period of international conflict and uncertainty caused by the rise of Nazism and Communism and the advent of nuclear weapons, these individuals argued for a "Christian" and a "realistic" approach to social and political problems. It is significant that for about a quarter century these men were listened to on Capitol Hill, in Westminster, on university campuses, in newspapers, as well as throughout the Western religious establishment. This volume provides chapters devoted to the thought of specific Christian realists: Niebuhr, Dulles, Martin Wight, John C. Bennett, and others. The book also includes a chapter on Niebuhr's influence on his secular disciples such as Hans Morgenthau and Arthur Schlesinger Jr. and a chapter on the Catholic social thinker John Courtney Murray.
