Christian Voices on World Order. The Whole Earth Papers, Vol. 1, No. 10.
Global Education Associates, East Orange, NJ.
This special issue of the Whole Earth Papers examines Christian perspectives on world order. The document is the first in a series to promote understanding of the ways in which religious and humanist traditions can help develop a more humane world order. Sixteen articles comprise the document. World order issues are explored from various theological dimensions including historical, creational and eschatological, evangelical, ethical and moral, contemplative, and spiritual. Topics discussed include Christ and world order, crises of growth, political power struggles, resource depletion, spiritual insight versus scientific inquiry, justice, political implications of Jesus' teachings, pacifism, human rights, disarmament, and the mission toward unity. The concluding section suggests that the Whole Earth Papers be used for personal growth and study, group discussion, background for lobbying efforts, college, high school, and adult education courses, and resource libraries.
