on the battle lines edited by Malcolm Boyd
ON THE BATTLE LINES is a manifesto for our times. It is a call to the Church to become, in the words of John Donne, "involved in mankind." Here are the lively, provocative, and occasionally controversial viewpoints of twenty-seven clergymen who have backed up their ideas with direct action. They are among the outstanding leaders of the Church today.
These essays challenge each of us to know the Christian's responsibility to do something about our many crucial social problems—such as the racial crisis, the inner-city, education, war and peace, technology, politics, justice, and communications. There are also stimulating chapters on the important matters of church unity, missionary activity, liturgical reform, the role of the laity, education for the ministry, and theology in the Space Age.
The sympathy and sensitivity of the contributors reveal the depth of the true Christian concern for the world and mankind. As Dom Benedict Reid writes, in the Epilogue, "Christ has already redeemed the world. The Christian is to show the world that its redeemer lives within the very social issues themselves.
