American Conscience: The Reinhold Niebuhr Story -

An American Conscience: The Reinhold Niebuhr Story tells Niebuhr's story through photographs, recordings, and interviews with his former students, his daughter, and eminent public figures including New York Times writer David Brooks, Civil Rights icon Andrew Young, Susannah Heschel and others. It also includes academic experts who discuss his life and influence. The stories and insights that emerge are critical to preserving and portraying Niebuhr's seminal role in American life. Perhaps the clearest indication of the scope of his appeal is the popularity of his Serenity Prayer, most prominently used by Alcoholics Anonymous.
