Gregory, Marion, Ed.
This volume contains the proceedings of a conference of social scientists and ministers on "Religion and Social Change" held at the North Carolina State University (Raleigh). Five seminars were held on the topics of (1) economic progress; (2) the distribution of income, status, and power; (3) the local community decision-making process; (4) maximizing the economy for development; and (5) organizing the church for social change. Among the more specific items discussed were: the meaning and measurement of economic progress; agricultural policy; economic change in the South; the distribution of the poor; the causes and politics of poverty; the power structure in North Carolina; the church and alternative strategies for change; the church and regional planning; labor unions and full employment; work and leisure; and manpower training programs. There was extensive discussion of ways to organize the church for social change including changing social functions of the church; new types of parish church renewal; ways of allocating church resources to deal with social problems; and the social impact of liturgy. Appendixes include reading lists on the subjects discussed. (dm)
