Martin Marty, in his new introduction for the Wesleyan reissue of H. Richard Niebuhr's The Kingdom of God in America, calls it "a classic." First published in 1938, "It remains the classic reflection of the Protestant roots and ethos behind pluralistic America and its religions today." Marty notes that the new "raw and rich pluralism" that challenges the Protestant hegemony in American life has left many Protestants longing to "get back to their roots." Niebuhr's book , perhaps more than any other, identifies and describes those roots for Protestants, especially Congregationalists, Episcopalians, Presbyterians, Methodists, Quakers, Baptists, and Lutherans

The meaning of revelation by H. Richard Niebuhr( Book )

52 editions published between 1941 and 2006 in English and Korean and held by 1,593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This affirmation of faith denies that mankind is but a cog in an impersonal universal machine. The author instead affirms the existence of a great personal God who does reveal himself to men. The author then claims that this supreme revelation can come only through a personal act of self-commitment with a vastly renewed and more fervent faith. This book, based upon the 1940 Taylor Lectures at Yale, is a living creed of religious conviction, meant to inspire ministers, students, and laymen toward more vital Christian living
