E. J. Dionne, Jr. calls attention to both the Niebuhrian humility and the full-bore Social Gospel worldliness of Obama’s religion. This is an uneasy mix, though Dionne doesn’t seem to realize it.
Notice the throwaway reference to Obama's involvement with the Jim Wallis organization, however. Very far from Niebuhrian `Christian realism' on foreign policy, is Mr. Wallis.
