Excerpt

This book is the revised text of the Edward Cadbury Lectures, given in Birmingham University in the spring of 1960. I am grateful to the Trustees of Edward Cadbury for having encouraged me to write down some ideas on some important topics of our times.

I have benefited from comments on earlier drafts which were read by Mr. I. M. Crombie and the Rev. Daniel Jenkins. They helped me to improve what I had written, though I doubt if I have fully satisfied them.

I have taken the opportunity to reprint two articles previously published in The Student World and The Journal of Religion on kindred topics, and to add a paper given at a World Council of Churches Conference in 1959. I am grateful to the editors of the two journals, and to the Chicago University Press, publishers of the latter journal, for permission to reprint, as also to the editors of The Christian Century for permission to include in the text some passages which first appeared in articles in that journal; these are copyright 1959 by the Christian Century Foundation. The passages on pages 93 and 94-5 from George F. Kennan's Reith Lectures, first printed in The Listener, are here reprinted from his book Russia, the Atom and the West, by permission of the Oxford University Press.

Nuffield College, Oxford D. L. M. December 1960 . . .
