Politics, Political Philosophy, and Christian Faith: Gerhart Niemeyer’s Journey. (2002). The Political Science Reviewer, 31, 41-69. https://politicalsciencereviewer.wisc.edu/index.php/psr/article/view/410


What Gerhart Niemeyer emphasized in the fullness of his life and the appreciation for tradition he developed over many years suggests that he would want us to learn especially from his way to a well-worn path.

The question for consideration is how his Christian faith emerged in the course of a life concerned with politics and political philosophy.
