Readers Respond to the “American Prophets” Episode of The Way of Improvement Leads Home Podcast

podcast-icon1In Episode 19 of The Way of Improvement Leads Home Podcast we interviewed Martin Doblmeier, producer of the forthcoming PBS documentary “An American Conscience: The Reinhold Niebuhr Story.”  The interview was part of a larger episode on “American Prophets.”

Ron Schooler, one of our regular listeners and patrons, passed along a nice review of the episode. It was the first one recorded in our new studio.

Ron writes:

Oh my! I love the improvement in audio quality. I ordered the DVD and plan to use it with my church group. The episode also got me to get down my American Library Reinhold Niebuhr: Major Works on Religion and Politics. I read his October, 1964 essay, “Goldwater Vs. History. The last line could have been said about our last election. It is:

The question is simply whether we affirm the process of gradual democratic adjustment which has given us a modicum of economic justice and promises more racial justice, or whether we allow ourselves to be overwhelmed by a group of Yahoos who do not understand–or claim they do not understand–the genius for justice in a free society.

Thanks, Ron!
