An American Conscience: The Reinhold Niebuhr Story. In the decades after WWI and WWII, Reinhold Niebuhr became the voice of conscience to an America reaching the pinnacle of its economic/political power and has influenced leaders such as Martin Luther King, Jr, President Barack Obama, former President Jimmy Carter, and others.
