This book gives clear and popular expression to views which Temple held, in general, for most of his working life. The book's first appearence in 1942 coincided with a surge of feeling that victory over Nazism must be followed by a "new deal" at home. Temple's objectives are: firstly, to vindicate the Church's right to intervene in economic questions; secondly, to show that it has something worthwhile to say; and thirdly, to indicate clearly where the competence of the Church ceases because technicalities are involved. Other points he emphasises are the need to determine the proper balance between the profit motive and service to the community, and between the power of the state and the freedom of the individual; and the importance for man of rediscovering his true relationship with the earth upon which he lives.
"A key piece of writing in Christianity this century, no book has yet replaced it." --Professor Ronald Preston
