"WCC visit to the Aborigines". -- back cover.
"To many people in the world, the Aborigines are the hidden people of Australia. It was therefore a rare privilege for a small group of us from five different countries to spend three weeks visiting Australia and listening to Aboriginal people as they told us of their dreams, their hopes, their suffering and their struggle. We were sent by the World Council of Churches at the invitation of the Australian Council of Churches. Our mission was a direct outcome of the Conference on World Mission and Evangelism held in Melbourne in 1980 on the theme `Your Kingdom Come'. There it was urged that in seeking to discern signs of that Kingdom in our world today, Christians should pay special attention to the voices of the poor, the oppressed, and the dispossessed of the earth. One result was the ACC's decision to request the WCC to send a delegation to Australia to express solidarity with the Aboriginal people, to consult with the Australian churches about their own response to racism and to enable the world Christian community, through informed prayer and effective action, to support the Aborigines in their struggle for justice". -- Intro., p. 5.

"Organized, racial violence is a growing phenomenon of major proportions in the contemporary world". .... "The following articles and cases have been put together by the PCR staff with a view to awaken the churches to the reality of racial violence and to alert them to the root causes of this global phenomenon of racial violence. We invite the churches to study their own context seriously to determine the real sources of violence, otherwise there would be temptation to blame the victims. We sincerely hope it will help to enlarge and refocus the debate on the factors of unrest and violence in our societies". -- Intro., pp. 5, 6.

Includes bibliographical references.
"From an ecumenical perspective the issue of political ethics has to do with the options which Christian people and the churches must take in their political witness, and with the biblical and theological foundations of such options. At least three questions pose themselves with particular urgency. First, can Christians and churches go beyond issuing general statements to making specific political judgements ? If it is agreed that they can, then on what bases may this be done ? Second, how do we adequately deal with the qualitatively new situation brought about by modern science and the technological revolution ? Technological developments tend to suppress the freedom of people, and the blessings of science are tragically mixed. How do we share in the benefits they bring without succumbing to their tyranny ? And third, how do we evaluate the awakening of people and the organization of people's movements, their determination to struggle against the forces of death and their search for a fuller, richer life ? Is the revolutionary option, for a while an inspiration for many, still possible and viable ? If it is not, what other options are there ?" -- Foreword, p. [vii].

"One such current is the reflection on the them of the unity of the Church and the unity of humankind. The purpose of this booklet is to describe the developments, course and effects of this current of reflection. 'Unity of the Church - Unity of Mankind' is not simply a Faith and Order theme. As will be clear from chapters 1 and 5, it is a fundamental -- possibly the most important -- theme of the ecumenical movement as a whole. The studies conducted by Faith and Order on this theme, summarized in chapters 2 to 4, represent no more nor less than the wide-ranging and diversified programme of research into this question. .... This summary is no more than an interim account. It attempts to point up the most important results of the study process so far. At the same time it opens up a new round in the debate. Part II aims to indicate some issues and problems which will need to be considered in our future discussions". -- Intro.
