By John Stott

"One of the most notable features of the worldwide evangelical movement during the last ten to fifteen years has been the recovery of our temporarily mislaid social conscience. For approximately fifty years (c.1920-70) evangelicals were preoccupied with the task of defending the historic biblical faith against the attacks of liberalism, and reacting against its 'social gospel.' But now we are convinced that God has given us social as well as evangelistic responsibilities in his world. Yet the half-century of neglect has put us far behind in this area. We have a long way to catch up...." - Introduction from Volume I - Involvement: Being a Responsible Christian in a Non-Christian Society

"Conversing with children is a unique art with rules and meanings of its own. Children are rarely naive in their communications. Their messages are often in a code, that requires deciphering. Andy, age ten, asked his father, 'What is the number of abandoned children in Harlem?' Father a chemist and an intellectual, was glad to see his son take an interest in social problems. He gave a long lecture on the subject and then looked up the figure. But Andy was not satisfied and kept on asking questions on the same subject: 'What is the number of abandoned children in New York city?' 'in the United States?' 'in Europe?' 'in the world?' Finally it occurred to father that his son was concerned, not about a social problem, but by a personal one. His questions stemmed not so much from sympathy for abandoned children as from fear of being abandoned. He was looking, not for a figure representing the number of deserted children, but for reassurance that he would not be deserted...." - Chapter One from Between Parent And Child

"I do not intend to begin, in accordance with the German tradition, with an epistemological justification. I want to begin with an epistemological accusation, or, rather, with an accusation against epistemology. Epistemology is an expression of doubt in the power and the validity of philosophical knowledge. It implies a division which undermines the possibility of knowledge. Thinkers who devote themselves to epistemology seldom arrive at ontology. The path they follow is not one which leads to reality. The most creative modern philosophers, such as Bergson, M. Scheler and Heidegger, are little concerned with epistemology. Man has lost the power of knowing real being, has lost access to reality and been reduced to studying knowledge. And so in his pursuit of knowledge he is faced throughout with knowledge and not with being. But one cannot arrive at being - one can only start with it. In using the term 'being' I am not referring to any particular system of ontology, such as that of St. Thomas Aquinas, which is prior to a critical theory of knowledge. I do not believe that it is at all possible to return to a pre-critical, dogmatic metaphysic. All I mean is that we must return to reality itself, to actual life, and overcome the duality which undermines the value of cognitive activity. It was inevitable that philosophical knowledge should pass through this duality and critical reflection; such was the path of philosophy in Europe. It was its inner dramatic destiny the critical theory itself, claiming as it does to be independent of the concrete facts of life, was an expression of European life and culture. It was a higher and more subtle form of European 'enlightenment' which claims to be universal...." - Chapter One from The Destiny of Man

Without a new theological reformation, the Christian church as the authentic body of Christ may not survive. As a Christian, a theologian, and a churchman within the Reformed tradition, I must believe that it is possible for the church to exist even though it may be in serious error in substance, strategy, style, or spirit. Martin Luther faced this haunting and recurring question: 'Am I alone right and is all the rest of the church wrong?' "... - Chapter One from Self Esteem: The New Reformation

"The world was still at war with itself when in the year AD 367 an instruction came to the monastic community at Tabinnisi. The head of the community, Theodore, was instructed to read the 39th Festal Letter of the Bishop of Alexandria, Athanasius. Perhaps the instruction had come from Alexandria. Such a thing would be expected from senior bishop who had already struck fear and hatred into the deviant hearts of the unorthodox, the heretics, on many occasions. Tabinnisi was some 500 miles down the Nile from Alexandria. It was remote from the full weight of authority and Big Trouble often starts in the remote places. It is unlikely that the instruction was for the ears of the community alone. It's pioneering founder, Pachomius, had within living memory set up a rule to unite disparate and solitary people within a community whose practice of strenuous labour involved a strict, almost military discipline. The Christian life was not to be for the elevation of the individual soul alone. The Church had found that the message of love for one's neighbour, promulgated by Christ himself, could blend with and yet further ennoble that civic responsibility and state-duty which was so dear and necessary to the Roman Imperium. Faraway places, even in upper Egypt were never too far away from the voice of authority...." - Chapter One from Gnostics

In searching for authoritative articles on Asiatic sex practices for an Encyclopedia of Sexual Behavior which I am now in the process of editing, I found it unusually difficult to track down accessible scholars who could accurately describe Eastern and Middle Eastern beliefs and acts, although I had no trouble whatever locating many authorities on American and European behavior...." - Introduction from The Jewel in the Lotus: A Historical Survey Of The Sexual Culture Of The East
