During several weeks in Germany, Spain, and Portugal after the World Congress on Evangelism, I meditated often on the evangelical role in the modern world. In time I produced some personal impressions of the larger significance of the Berlin congress and the special mandate it has thrust upon Bible-believing followers of the Christ.

These convictions have just been published (cloth and paperback) by Word Books in Evangelicals at the Brink of Crisis. Chapter titles are “Evangelicals and the Theological Crisis,” “Evangelicals and the Social Crisis,” “Evangelicals and the Evangelistic Crisis,” and “Evangelicals and the Ecumenical Crisis.” The recurring emphasis on evangelical crisis is demanded, I feel, by the present predicament of the evangelical task force.

The papers presented in Berlin by World Congress participants are just now coming off the press. The two volumes, under the congress theme One Race, One Gospel, One Task, are available from the Grason Company, 1313 Hennepin Avenue, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55403, at a price of $9.95 complete. Purchased separately, Volume I costs $4.95; it includes the opening addresses, Bible studies, main addresses, and Windows on the World. Volume II costs $6.95 and includes position papers, discussion-group papers, and a summary of comments.
