Was our Lord’s service social or redemptive? Does Christ not command social service to all men? Should we insist on justice because God is just, or deny our rights because God is longsuffering? How will the believer know which is the proper course of social action at a particular time? Should wealthy persons disperse their possessions? Dr. Ryrie addresses these and other pertinent questions in his timely book on the Church’s social responsibility. Dr. Ryrie gives insight into how we can be both salt and light in today’s world, talks about the personal priorities of Christ while on earth, and talks about our duties or responsibilities to all men as well as our civic responsibilities. Understanding this book is a must for those who desire to determine the extent of their involvement in today’s world. It is informative and challenging.
