Lovatt takes up Niebuhr's theology and presents it to be, at its heart, an attempt to grapple with the most powerful and dangerous aspect of human nature: a quality Niebuhr describes as 'the will-to-power'. The author argues that Niebuhr identifies the fundamental nature of human sin as having very specific qualities and that Niebuhr, over his various works, develops a theology that seeks to deal effectively with this quality.ContentsContents:Foreword, Acknowledgements, Preface, Abbreviations1.
