Excerpt from The Church's Message for the Coming Time: 11 Religion and Human Progress Each writer is responsible only for his own book, but the series is undertaken in the joint conviction - (1) That Christianity holds the key of the coming time; (2) That Christianity means Churchmanship, viz. membership in one Divine Society, which reveals the spiritual basis alike of the family, the nation, and the race; (3) That the Catholic Church, the fellowship of the baptized, is really the organ of the world's redemption, since the living God, Who spake by the Hebrew Prophets, has given in Christ Jesus His final message to humanity, and has assigned to His Church the task of its progressive interpretation; (4) That the moral and intellectual bewilderment of our generation, resulting from the influx of new knowledge and the uprising of new enthusiasms during the last half-century, has now been brought to a climax, which provides the Church with a unique opportunity for explaining her mission to the world; (5) That, while the call of the Church must always be to repentance, the primary summons of to-day is rather to frank and careful re-statement, since Christian people cannot realize the extent of their failure, unless they have an adequate vision of what the Church is intended to be; (6) That the Church's message cannot satisfy the spiritual requirements of to-day unless it is presented in terms which are consistent with modern Biblical investigation, and in a manner sympathetic alike to modern scientific discoveries and to modern social aspirations; (7) That faith in the living Christ constitutes the true centre of human knowledge, and the true ground of confidence for the future.
