About this title


Born in 1910 into an industrial environment in northern Switzerland, Arthur Rich's spiritual and intellectual wrestlings were how the Christian Gospel could embrace the real world of industry and work. This book tells how he worked out this Gospel and gave it a shakingly honest intellectual expression that the non-theologian could equally well discuss.
What he says could be sharply illuminating in the setting of British culture and religion. For this reason his method, especially the idea that New Testament «agape-love» is a secular decision-making agent, is tested out on the issues of work and worklessness thrown up for christians and non-christians in today's British society.


«In my opinion this is one of the most important theological contributions to our present crisis. As the crisis is not just technical and organizational, but much more culural and religious, a new, interdisciplinary and intercultural approach is needed - just the type of work that Harold Tonks has produced.» (W.J. Hollenweger, Review of Mission)
