Floris W. Wood (, 6. The “mystery of evil” appears, repeatedly and inevitably, in the fabric of social life and interaction. This work first probes the nature of the difficult task which faces the modern Church as it copes with very complex social changes and then deals incisively with very specific social, sexual, and global issues: work and unemployment, industrial relations, anti-Semitism and apartheid, poverty and wealth, roles of men and women, marriage and divorce, abortion, homosexual partnership, the nuclear threat, the ecological crisis, North-South economic inequality, and human rights. White’s reiterated contention (in Christian Ethics) is a valid one: one wholesome outcome of the Christian Church’s {67} continuing struggle with the meaning and import of certain Biblical texts has been a more flexible conception of revelation and inspiration, a conception which recognizes the possibility of some variation and some progression in the understanding and application of Biblical truth to new situations and in different times.

All true ethical discernment and action by the Church and its members must retain the centrality, authority and abiding influence of Jesus Christ and His Spirit within.

Nevertheless, many evangelical Christians have become anxious and disconcerted about the way in which the Church ought to cope with increasingly complex societal crises.
