"The present volume, the fourth in this series, essays the ambitious task of offering some clues to what is happening in that spiritual conflict which is modern Africa. For spiritual conflict it is and that in its essence. .... The spiritual conflict in Africa is a striving to re-establish that primal unity of man with both the material and the spiritual universe which African man instinctively feels to be true 'being' and which hardly exists anywhere in Africa today. Believing this, the author seeks to establish first of all the essentially African way of feeling the truth about things, a 'feeling after the truth', which finds expression in an illimitable anthology of proverbial sayings rather than in a systematic philosophy". -- General Intro.

"The Board for Social Responsibility inaugurates, from time to time, serious studies of difficult social questions. The present study, on the medical termination of pregnancy, takes its place in a series which has included `Ought Suicide to be a Crime ?' (1959), `Artificial Insemination by Donor' (1960), `Sterilization : An Ethical Enquiry' (1962), and `Decisions about Life and Death' (1965). .... Like all the studies in this series, the Report carries with it no authority beyond that of the group which has created it. This authority is indeed weighty enough in itself, but it would become less so if it were presented as already carrying some ecclesiastical authority, when it is intended to help Christians and others to think rightly about an extremely difficult subject". -- Foreword.
