"This book should be ready by all concerned with the growing controversy over the church's participation in public affairs. It provides a background knowledge of the process of community organization and highlights the paradox of conflict as a basic organization technique and the Christian concept of reconciliation. The purpose of the book is to provide a foundation for consideration of fundamental questions about community organization Mr. Schaller says, "The answers ... to these questions will determine the extent, the nature, and the effectiveness of his (the churchman) participation in this effort to influence the course and pace of social change."" In clear and readable language, he gives a brief description of the field of community organization, tells how it reached its present state, and constructs a sound foundation from which to begin discussion of twenty-five key questions which he projects as a postscript."
