Includes questions for discussion. From the book cover: The United Presbyterian Church appointed a committee of fifteen ministers and laymen to focus on the role of the church in the human community and to explore the background and the meaning of the church's involvement in political action. This book, written by the chairman of that committee, is not a policy statement, but is published by the church as a study guide to help us think about a complex subject in a complex world. Examining the words of the Bible and the heritage of the Reformation, it analyzes the belief that the community of faith is called by God to a vocation in the world for the sake of the world. No one can, alone, examine all the aspects of the questions discussed here. Study groups and individuals will find this thoughtful, thorough, simple yet profound little book both provocative and useful. Dr. Lewis Mudge (1929-2009) was a Christian theologian and ecumenist. A Rhodes scholar, he authored twelve books and was a mentor to many students. Free shipping on domestic orders $25 and over!
