Episode 90 - Martin Doblemeir: Searching for a New Niebuhr
By Crackers and Grape Juice
Jason caught up with the founder and president of Journey Films to talk about their latest project, "An American Conscience: The Niebuhr Story" From Journey Films: "An American Conscience: The Reinhold Niebuhr Story examines the career and global impact of renowned American-born theologian Reinhold Niebuhr, who became a voice of conscience to a country reaching the pinnacle of its economic and political power. As the Great Depression gripped America, he rocked the liberal Christian community with 'Moral Man and Immoral Society,' which challenged the idea of inherent progress and justice in history. During and after the war, Niebuhr helped establish the infrastructure that gave Christian churches and thinkers a voice in postwar politics, and proved instrumental in the effort to form the World Council of Churches."
