From Publishers Weekly:

Written primarily between 1931 and 1949, these warmly human letters reveal the noted American theologian (1892-1971) as a loving father, caring friend and devoted husband. Although such influential works as Moral Man and Immoral Society and The Nature and Destiny of Man are referred to mainly in passing, the essence of Niebuhr's liberal and social-activist philosophy--in particular his concern for Christianity's role in the public world--is revealed throughout. His correspondence with such friends as W. H. Auden, Felix Frankfurter and Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr., and Ursula Niebuhr's introduction and linking material provide additional insights. While the moving final chapter ("Letters to a Dear But Departed Spouse") might have better served as an introduction to Reinhold's early years, this volume extends our knowledge of an important 20th-century thinker and his equally intelligent, appealing wife.

From Library Journal:

This volume consists of letters by and to eminent American theologian Niebuhr (1892-1971), who taught at Union Theological Seminary and Harvard University. Edited by his wife Ursula--herself a trained theologian--the book provides significant insights into the personal and professional life of Niebuhr. A prolific writer on history, religion, and politics, he was also active in most of the significant liberal political and religious causes of his day, such as the Americans for Democratic Action and the World Council of Churches. The collection illuminates his convictions and love for his wife and children. Among the most interesting correspondence are exchanges between Niebuhr and historian Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr. and jurist Felix Frankfurter. All theological collections will find this important.
