The Dean of Union Theological Seminary has made a significant contribution to the World Christian Books series. Known for applying the principles of the ospel to public questions, Dean Bennett's approach in this volume is in keeping with the purpose of this series in that he puts himself outside of the American frame of reference and conducts his inquiry from the standpoint of the world Christian. He deals with ""The Christian's Social Responsibility"", ""From Christian Faith to Political Decisions"", ""The Christian and Political Authority"", ""The Christian and Political Structures"", ""The Issues Raised by Communism"", ""Christian Action -- Peril and Hope"". Perhaps because of limitations of space, the author does not illustrate the principles he enunciates by reference to concrete situations. As a result the treatment is rather doctrinaire. As is the case with the other volumes in this series this book is to be translated into many languages and is designed especially for use in ""The younger churches"".
