Excerpt from The Social Principles of Jesus
This book is not a life of Christ, nor an exposition of his religious teachings, nor a doctrinal statement about his per son and work. It is an attempt to formulate in simple proposi tions the fundamental convictions of Jesus about the social and ethical relations and duties of men.
Our generation is profoundly troubled by the problems of organized society. The most active interest of serious men and women in the colleges is concentrated on them. We know that we are in deep need of moral light and spiritual inspiration in our gropings. There is an increasing realiza tion, too, that the salvation of society lies in the direction toward which Jesus led. And yet there is no clear under standing of what he stood for. Those who have grown up under Christian teaching can sum up the doctrines of the Church readily, but the principles which we must under stand if we are to follow Jesus in the way of life, seem enveloped in a haze. The ordinary man sees clearly only Christ's law of love and the golden rule. This book seeks to bring to a point what we all vaguely know.
