"The ecumenical movement has a memory, and this book has been written to contribute to it. It is not likely that the history of events and institutions which constituted the movement will be forgotten, for they are all well documented. Mine is an account of what the early ecumenical movement believed in, what it stood for, and how it understood the times in which it lived. The story is told in the first person, because I was there, believed in it, and felt called to serve it throughout my ministry. A chief purpose in writing has been to make materials accessible. Many of them are contained in fugitive pamphlets, dull documents, drier minutes of meetings, and not very exciting biographies". -- Preface, p. ix.

"[By] Samuel Kobia".
"Where, I kept asking myself, is the hope ? Why are so many people feeling such malaise about their future ? It is not just the current misnamed war on terrorism or globalized poverty and disease, or the planet's tragic environmental devastation. It is a loss of faith, of belief. What can the ecumenical movement do to bring hope to a hopeless world, not the false hope of denial or the vapid spirituality that escapes reality but the flame of hope that is willing to accept the challenges of the 21st century ?". -- Foreword.
In this book "Kobia addresses humanity's sense of alienation and quest for identity, asking how the churches, the ecumenical movement and the World Council of Churches -- divided as they are -- may yet be renewed for service. Reiterating the radical message of Jesus, he calls for a spirituality of resistance to all that threaten people and the planet. Kobia recognizes signs of hope already manifesting themselves throughout the world, and reports experiences of grace and transformation that may serve as models for future Christian witness and common action". -- back cover.

Notes
Verna Dozier "has gathered important writings -- her own and others' -- that answer three vital questions about ministry in the world. Part I addresses the question, `How does one make decisions when the choice is only between lesser evils ?' The task of the lay person is not as clear as choosing the good rather than the evil. These readings point to the agonizingly ambiguous questions most Christians face in daily work. What does an editor print -- and why ? How do politicians and bank tellers make tough choices and live with them ? Part II asks, `How does one live with the incomplete -- never quite making it ?' These readings point to the tough, slogging work that's involved in dealing with big issues -- getting state mental health policy changed, or dealing with hazardous waste. Part III asks the question, `How can we educate so that the resources of the faith are there for strength and not for solutions ?' This section addresses the relationship between the church and the world, theological issues related to the ministry of the laity, and specifically ways the institutional church can support the ministry of the laity where they live and work". -- inside front cover.
Contents divided into three main parts: I: Making Decisions -- II: Living with the Incomplete -- III: Educational Support Systems. Part III divided into three sub-sections: Relationship between the Church and the World -- The Theological Issues -- New Challenges for the Institution.

"Edited by Dr. Percy Dearmer, Canon of Westminster".
"The issue, indeed, is simple. The motives and methods of human life are not sufficiently moralised: it was to moralise the machinery of production, to limit the power of selfishness, that Wilberforce and Shaftesbury were working a century ago; and the whole world now enjoys what Christians then won: but in many ways industry and business, and family life, and civic and political activity, need further moralisation. Money -- the necessary use of tokens of exchange -- has been overlooked in its moral aspect (in spite of what Christ said about it) .... And, alas, there was one aspect of human life which was not understood a hundred years ago; and to this our present miseries are mainly due. The very word 'international' had then only just been coined by Jeremy Bentham. The whole conception of moralising international relations was in its infancy. So the world went on to its doom. So, because the nations and their representatives have not yet learnt the elements of international behaviour, we stand at this moment of writing on the brink of irretrievable disaster. It is in a very real sense true that only Christ can save the world from ruin to-day. Are we prepared to let his spirit save the nations from themselves ?" -- Preface, p. 10-11.

"Owing to the great importance of the Report of the Archbishops' Fifth Committee of Inquiry on Christianity and Industrial Problems, the Editorial Board has decided to reprint certain sections of it, the present Bulletin comprising the third chapter of the Report. It is hoped that in this way those who have not already studied the whole document may have an opportunity of appreciating in part the thought and method of the original, and may be led to a careful consideration of the whole. Arrangements have been made by the Board whereby the Report in full may be purchased from the Upper Canada Tract Society, 2 Richmond Street E., Toronto, for 35 cents, post paid. The Editorial Board desires to express its appreciation of the courtesy of the Bishop of Winchester, Chairman of the Committee in England, and of the S.P.C.K., the publishers, for permission to reprint in Canada" -- [Foreword], p. 3.
"Four great principles stand out clearly from His teaching. God is our Father and all men are our brethren. The Kingdom of God is at hand. Life is the measure of true value. All disciples are stewards" (p. 3). "There is to be a Christian Society, a People of God, a Church, which shall be the salt, the leaven of human life. But this Society is rather the means of realising the Kingdom than the Kingdom itself" (pp. 3-4). "To what extent have the social implications of the teaching of the New Testament been developed by the Christian thought of succeeding ages ? The question is not easily answered" (p. 5). "The characteristic of mediaeval thought on social relationships -- the thought not only of the `thinkers' but of some part at least of the practical order -- was the attempt to regard all economic conditions as a sub-department of the grand interest of human life -- religion. The essence of the difference between these ideas and modern economic opinion is the disappearance of that characteristic" (p. 15). "[B]y the middle of the seventeenth century several causes had combined to depose, first religious, and then moral, considerations from their position of theoretical pre-eminence as the standard by which economic transactions were to be tried" (p. 17). "Can we now begin to answer the question: how could the [nineteenth century] age tolerate those abuses, which are sickening even to read of ? How could men who were really religious, men sincerely patriotic and personally benevolent, how could men even of common sense defend as a quite natural state of things such facts as children of six kept at work in factories from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m., girls under eight crawling through coal seams eighteen inches high, boys of four sent up flues seven inches square, in `a country renowned for its humanity' ?" (pp. 20-21). "When all these currents of thought are taken into account it becomes intelligible how good men could tolerate appalling social conditions. ... But all of them, and society as a whole, were the victims of the divorce of economics from ethics. Moreover, economics was not merely non-moral, it was even non-human, and therefore narrow and misleading even in the economic sphere. Nowadays we begin to see this, and our task is first to accept the modern economists' work in putting their science on a broader human basis, and then to keep economics in its proper place as subordinate study in a wider social conscience" (pp. 24-25). "As to this present time, the stern teaching of the war has undoubtedly had a tremendous effect in awakening the social conscience of Christians. All are resolved that the sacrifice of our best men shall not have been in vain, and that among the fruits of it must be a new and better order in which justice and friendship shall reign. All Christians are convinced that this new order is impossible apart from the principles of Christ and the power of His Spirit" (p. 28).
Contents divided into sub-sections: The Teaching of the New Testament -- The Fathers and the Mediaeval Church -- The Influence of the New Political Economy -- Recent Developments.
Bulletin No. 35, "Christian Principles and Their Social Application", April 1920, contains an abridgement of the second chapter of the same report.

Text of an address delivered by the Rev. Leland B. Henry, Executive Director of The Commission on Christian Social Relations of the Diocese of New York to a meeting at St. Paul's Bloor Street, sponsored by the Toronto Diocesan Council for Social Services. "It is some two or three years since we have given a Bulletin on Biblical and doctrinal backgrounds of the social aspects of the Gospel. Mr. Henry's address will revive any lagging interest on the part of clergy of people in that more necessary facet of our Lord's work and the work of His Church". -- p. [1].
"The Church's interests in the kind of a world men have to live in is not a mere afterthought, added to her basic concern with men's souls. It is part of the very fabric of her faith and practice, and has been from the days of the law-givers and prophets of the Old Testament. For the Church has always recognized that men's souls and bodies are united in the mystery of human personality. .... There is no area of life -- political, social or economic -- which does not affect the bodies and the souls of men, and hence there is not area of life which lies beyond the interest and the concerns of the Church of Christ". -- p. [1].

"Thirty-three years ago Communism to most people in our country was only a name, a vague idea. Thirty-three years ago Communism had no political power over one foot of the world's surface: today one-third of the world's area is under its domination. Thirty-three years ago no human being owed allegiance to the authority of any Communist state: today millions are under its power. .... In addition, no one knows to what extent Russian Communism `rules' China or in what way the Chinese people accept, or will accept, authority from the Kremlin. It is obvious, however, that they are more certainly within the Russian sphere of influence than of the Western Democracies. .... Today Communism has a well integrated program in the areas of thought, practical economics, and active politics. Its swift and apparently effective sweep over a third of the world in one generation is one of the most startling phenomena of history. Therein lies the menace and the challenge to both Christianity and democracy. We find many clergy (and others) who still find it difficult to reduce to small compass for teaching and preaching purposes any analysis of what Communism really is. .... The Christian answer to the whole theoretical and applied program of Communism today demands, as we see it, an answer along three lines, Though summed up differently, this threefold answer is reminiscent of the Lambeth 1948 treatment of the question. 1. Intellectual .... 2. Evangelistic .... 3. Practical ....". -- Foreword.

"This is an account of some 25 years of what is now known as Urban Rural Mission. .... What is attempted here is to give an introductory account ... of the years since the WCC's New Delhi Assembly in 1961 which have seen a direct association between the WCC and `urban industrial' or `urban rural' mision. The basic rationale of UIM/URM -- as set out with deceptive simplicity, for example, in a 1969 document -- was to `explore new forms of Christian mission' in the context of modern society. The purpose was to help the development of the policies of the WCC and constituent churches with regard to mission and ministry, in the hope that `these explorations would discover the need for changes in current missionary policies' as well as `possibly indicating a more definitive role for the WCC in global economic, political and social decisions'. .... The awkwardness of the name (the earlier Urban Industrial Mission was just as peculiar) is an indication of the difficulty of trying to define this small section of the Commission on World Mission and Evangelism (CWME), itself one of the four sub-units within the WCC's Faith and Witness unit." -- pp. xi-xii.

Includes biographical note: p. [109]
"Gregory Baum presents the new Faith and Justice movement in the chuches -- especially the Roman Catholic Church -- together with the considerable opposition to it. He discusses why many Christians are becoming activists, turning their faith into deeds by working for the liberation of the poor, not only in South America or the Third World, but in Canada as well. He argues for a new ecumenism, permitting a more representative opinion within the Church and, in a larger sense, for what he believes are the fundamentals of a 'just society'. He says that there is a new realization that God is on the side of the oppressed -- that Christians are here to help in the struggle for liberation". -- back cover.

Notes
"[By] Gregory Baum".
"Five lectures broadcast on CBC Radio's Ideas programs in November 1987". -- verso of t.-p.
Includes biographical note: p. [109]
"Gregory Baum presents the new Faith and Justice movement in the chuches -- especially the Roman Catholic Church -- together with the considerable opposition to it. He discusses why many Christians are becoming activists, turning their faith into deeds by working for the liberation of the poor, not only in South America or the Third World, but in Canada as well. He argues for a new ecumenism, permitting a more representative opinion within the Church and, in a larger sense, for what he believes are the fundamentals of a 'just society'. He says that there is a new realization that God is on the side of the oppressed -- that Christians are here to help in the struggle for liberation". -- back cover.
Contents: The Solidarity Movement in the Church -- Opposition to the Solidarity Movement -- The New Social Gospel in Canada -- God as Comforter and Liberator -- Conflict Over Values -- Bibliographical Note -- [Biographical Note].
