Elizabeth Sifton on Neibuhr's Serenity Prayer

Read Elizabeth Sifton's The Serenity Prayer: Faith and Politics in Times of Peace and War . My Amazon review below,
A disappointing book. Far too much opinion without analysis on today's politics and aggravatingly few recollections of the interesting people who filled Sifton's youth.

I had to keep repeating the prayer for serenity-of-mind to get through it; hoping I'd find a nugget or two of insight, or a story about some of these great thinkers in Sifton's life, before hitting the back cover.
