"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.

Notes
"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.

Includes bibliographical notes.
"This volume has been written in connection with the Oxford Conference on Church, Community and State. It is plain that the relation of the church to the community and to the state can be profitably considered only in the light of two fundamental questions. The first is the nature of the church. The second is the functions of the church in relation to society. .... Six other volumes in connection with the Oxford Conference are in preparation and will be published, it is hoped, in the autumn of the present year". -- Preface, p. v.

Includes bibliographical references and index.
"To write an account of social, political and economic thought in the ecumenical movement might be seen to be an audacious enterprise -- not for lack of material (though much of it needs to be brought to light from archives and many scattered places of publication), but because of the very nature of the social-ethical enterprise within the ecumenical movement. The context in which the 20th-century ecumenical movement was born differed completely from that of today, and the shifts in central social concerns and in the political and economic landscape have been so rapid that any attempt to keep up with the demands on social ethics is almost futile. .... Nevertheless, there are two reasons why the attempt must be made. The reconciliation just mentioned cannot take place apart from historical insights. The ecumenical movement is is danger, due to the fast-changing world, of forgetting its past. Preserving the ecumenical memory is a vital task for ourselves and the ecumenical generation to come. Second, no concise but inclusive documentary survey of social, political and economic thought in the 20th-century has ever been published. This book tries to fill that gap". -- Intro., p. [vii]-viii.

Notes
"By Cyril Garbett, Archbishop of York".
"First published in 1948". -- verso of t.-p.
"Seven of these addresses were given at different centres to the clergy and churchwardens of the diocese of York on the occasion of my primary visitation; the eighth was given in almost identical terms at four large meetings of the laity as 'a call to loyalty to Christ and His Church'. .... Through all these charges there run four convictions -- firstly, we are living in one of the great crises of human history; our days are revolutionary, the old order is passing away, and a new age has not yet come to the birth. Secondly, that Christianity is now a minority religion; it no longer dominates the Western World; the power it once had of imposing its teaching on states and communities has long vanished; so it must persuade and influence through its message and its life. Thirdly, though the Church is in a minority, it possesses a supernatural Gospel and life; the world will only listen to it if it can give this message and offer power not from man but from God. Fourthly, that it only this supernatural Gospel which will enable us to overcome the forces of evil which now threaten mankind with destruction, and give us the true solution to the problems which are now proving so baffling and perplexing". -- Intro.
