FROM THE PUBLICATION COMMITTEE
The general topic for the text books for 1915-16, as first chosen by the “Committee of Twenty-eight,” was “The Church at Its Task.” This committee is composed of representatives from the four missionary organizations: the Home Missions Council; the Council of Women for Home Missions; the Conference of Foreign Mission Boards and the Federation of Women’s Boards of Foreign Missions.
The outbreak of the great war of the nations brought new duties and questions of adjustment to the Christian church; the Committee has recognized this in changing the original topic to “The Church and the Nations.”
This book is written from the standpoint of the words chosen as the key note for the year, “Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth.” It recognizes the fact that the Kingdom cannot come to our land, or to the world unless all social conditions are drawn within its scope; it emphasizes the desire of Home Missions and the church to work toward this great end, and the recognition of their responsibility for its accomplishment. But unless the nations of the world are trending toward the day when peace shall reign and hatred and strife cease among men, these desires cannot be realized. With this in view the portions dealing with social conditions and peace possibilities have been written.
That this book may reveal the far-reaching potentialities of Home Missions as a dynamic force for reclaiming, educating, healing, and integrating our nation into a land over which the Christ shall reign and that from Him it shall also draw its ideals and its power, is the hope and the prayer of the author and the Council of Women for Home Missions.
In this 6 chapter book by Edith Allen, she presents us with some thoughts about missions. Her chapters are Missions as a National Force, a reclaiming force, and educative force, a healing force, an integrating force, and source of power.
