9781258481872: How to Serve God in a Marxist Land

Excerpt from How to Serve God in a Marxist Land

After this analysis of the biblical materials relevant to his subject, Hamel devotes the remainder of the essay to an attempt to apply these biblical insights to the central problem of the proclamation of the gospel in the Marxist world. There are a number of points in this section that are worth highlighting for our purposes. For one thing, the author counsels us at considerable length to avoid attacking or defend ing the Marxist order for what can only be called crude anti-communist or pro-communist reasons. He gives telling examples of the mentality of each position.
