Publisher's Description

Our times offer abundant evidence that organized Christianity is failing to fulfill its responsibilities in bringing about the changes most desperately needed in the world. The great events of our day are occurring apart from the church, and this fact indicates to Harvey Cox that the secular world is the principal arena of God's work today. Where does this leave the organized church, the clergy, and the lay member as they witness in modern society? These are the kind of questions that Harvey Cox faces and provocatively discusses in this book. There is no doubt as to where he stands personally with regard to the issues that trouble society most deeply. He is a prophet of God's reconciliation, whether in matters of race, ecumenical relationships, or world order, and he feels that Christians who stand with him will have to enter more vitally into the secular world if they are to be agents of reconciliation. You may or may not agree with this book, but you owe it to yourself to read it. Regarded as one of the most exciting thinkers of recent years in the Christian world, Harvey Cox writes out of an extensive background of study coupled with vital experiences in Christian witness. He received his AB degree from the University of Pennsylvania, his BD from Yale Divinity School, and his PhD from Harvard University. He has been actively associated with the Blue Hill Christian Center, an inner-city ministry in the Boston area, and is a leader in the civil rights movement. He spent 1962-63 studying at the Free University of Berlin and, as an ecumenical worker for the Gossner Mission, helped maintain two-way communication between Christians of East and West Berlin. He is the author of the popular book The Secular City, as well as many articles.
