During the month of June the NBC radio network’s Sunday morning “Faith in Action” program (8:15–8:30 Eastern time) is being devoted to three panel discussions abridged from the current television series “God and Man in the Twentieth Century.” Another panel, “Is the Sunday School a Lost Cause?,” scheduled June 18, brings together Congressman John B. Anderson (R.-Ill.), Dr. Richard C. Halverson of International Christian Leadership, and me in echoes of a larger panel that drew 2,000 persons to Philadelphia’s Baptist Temple during the 150th anniversary of the American Sunday-School Union.
