A More Christian Industrial Order: The Christian's Duty at Work and in Labor (Hardcover)
Disillusionment spread like wildfire after the cataclysmic events of World War I and the Spanish influenza pandemic of 1918-19. The emotional toll was particularly acute amongst workers and laborers, with many unable to find meaning or purpose anymore in their work. It was out of this environment that Henry Sloane Coffin (The Creed of Jesus, University Sermons) penned A More Christian Industrial Order.
Throughout the book he examines the Christian's duty as producer, consumer, owner, investor, employer and employee. He also demonstrates how the Spirit of Jesus can reinvigorate and transform the way individuals and societies approach and experience work. Coffin's masterful application offers a glimpse of a better industrial world. A world where social strife, self-interest, profits, and greed are replaced with fraternity, selflessness, eternal purpose and mutual service - the perfect remedy for workers who feel lost and discouraged.
