We have been silent witnesses of evil deeds; we have been drenched by many storms; we have learnt the arts of equivocation and pretence; experience has made us suspicious of other and kept us from being truthful and open; intolerable conflicts have worn us down and even made us cynical.

Are we still of any use?

What we shall need is not geniuses or cynics or misanthropes, or clever tacticians, but plan, honest, straightforward men (and women).

Will our inward power of resistance be strong enough, and our honesty with ourselves s remorseless enough for us to find our way back to simplicity and straightforwardness?

This book is to make the reader aware of the stand that the Church has taken at every point in our nation’s history/her story. Every one needs to hear that the Church is taking a stand. This is not so much to elevate the standing of the Church per se, but to reinstate the failing faith of many conscientious and sincere Christians who are at the brink of despair at the way things in this country and the world are going.
