Excerpt from Selfhood and Service: The Relation of Christian Personality to Wealth and Social Redemption
It is hoped there is a message in these pages interesting alike to the man of faith and the man of science, more interesting where the two are combined. The motive of the writing is a deep sympathy with the weak, who are forced to the wall in the awful industrial contest of life - the defective, the dispossessed in our present social chaos. The strong need no friends, they can fight their own battles, but the Christian may well say, Let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth, and let my arm wither, when the one shall cease to plead the cause of the poor or the other refuse to defend him. But the facts of Christian history and the stern laws of life must be regarded. A permanent social order can come only from a constructive principle which regards those facts and measures those laws. This principle is set forth here, at once consist ent with the claims of personality and the work of social redemption.
