"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

Most of the stories which I have now gathered together are very much shorter. Some were written many years ago, Others more recently.
