Man is thus in the position of being unable to comprehend himself in his full stature of freedom without a principle of comprehension which is beyond his comprehension.” (Pg. ) Later, he adds, “A religion of revelation thus alone able to do justice to both the freedom and the finiteness of man and to understand the character of the evil 5/5(3). His The Nature and Destiny of Man is one of the few seminal theological books written by an American. In it he reiterates a theme that led some to place 4/5(1).   Addeddate Identifier Identifier-ark ark://t5q86ps47 Ocr ABBYY FineReader Ppi Scanner Internet Archive Python library THE origin, nature, and destiny of man have for ages been considered problems of a most interesting character. Philosophers and theologians have directed earnest attention to their solution, while poets have allowed their imagination unlimited scope in a field which seemed to be almost boundless.

Here he presents his data as well as a definition of what is spirituality. The author's approach to the subject is solid, not fluffy, thus making this an interesting book for critical thinkers. Hardy concludes that he feels spiritual experiences are real and cannot be completely explained by current scientific models/5(1). Man and His Destiny Book Description: This book is one of the many Islamic publications distributed by Ahlulbayt Organization throughout the world in different languages with the aim of conveying the message of Islam to the people of the world. Ahlulbayt Organization is a registered Organisation that operates and is sustained through. In Human Nature, the first volume of The Nature and Destiny of Man, Reinhold Niebuhr surveys human history from Plato to modern times, focusing on political, religious, and philosophical movements.   Nature subjects man to the laws of changing matter, but he subjects himself to the laws of thought. By this means he makes himself a member of a higher order than the one to which he belongs through his body. This order is the spiritual. The spiritual is as different from the soul as the soul is from the body.

  We have shown how man is to be regarded in his picture-nature and in the spirituality which thereby reveals itself. Once this perception is attained, then, in the spiritual world where we see man living and moving as a Spirit-being, we are also on the point of seeing the reality of the moral laws of the soul. His nature is open on either side to impressions and is capable of a twofold activity, and his whole destiny depends of the proper co-ordination of the two elements in his nature: and not his destiny alone; for since he is a bridge, the lower world is in some sense dependent on him for its spiritualization and its integration in the universal order. The Nature and Destiny of Man (two volumes, ) is one of the important works of the American theologian Reinhold book is partly based on his Gifford , the Modern Library ranked it the 18th-greatest non-fiction book of the 20th century.. Contents. Reinhold Niebuhr deals with profound issues such as human nature, history, and the end of history. Recognizing his possession of this superb knowledge of both science and religion, some of us urged him to write a book on the creation of the world and the origin of man, setting forth both the up-to-date views of science, and the facts provided through revelation. The present volume is the result.
