Excerpt from A Challenge to Life Service
In the midst Of our modern world, where confusion is made more confused by the immense publicity that is given to all our problems and shortcomings, the individual Christian man or woman wonders in a kind Of amazed perplexity, What can one Of us possibly do in the face of a situation like this?
These studies are intended to indicate the lines along which each individual may work out the answer for himself. F ac ing the great problems of the modern world, an attempt is made to point out the lines of Jesus' solution, and to examine frankly whether the Christian can apply them as he meets present day conditions. It is hoped also that help is given in the discovery Of how one may make the entire round Of life - working hours and spare time alike - serve the Kingdom Of God.
Readings and Suggestions for Thought and Discussion have been omitted from Chapter I, which is introductory. Daily Readings have also been omitted from Chapter XII in order that full consideration may be given during the week to the actual questions raised in the Study for the Week.
The authors wish that these studies shall be regarded as suggestive. The themes handled are of such consequence that no one can claim any finality in their treatment.
While those who write must accept final responsibility, this book truly represents the results of the experience of many men and women who have put their material freely at the disposal Of the authors. Throughout its whole course, the work has been done in the closest cooperation with the mem bers of the Committee on Voluntary Study of the Council Of North American Student Movements and the members of the sub-committee on College Courses of the Sunday School Council of Evangelical Denominations; they are especially to be thanked for their patience, persistence, and courtesy in constructive suggestion.
