Contents: I. The American people need now to be imbued with a righteous faith / John Foster Dulles --

IV. Christian motivation supplies an essential prerequisite to effective action / Luther A. Weigle --
V. Christians must seek the cooperation of other faiths / Everett R. Clinchy --

VII. 1. Peace terms must not be a vehicle for vengeance / John C. Bennett --
2. The new order must be appraised in terms of the welfare of human beings rather than of the power and prestige of states / Albert W. Beaven --

5. Power over vanquished or non-self-governing peoples must also carry responsibility toward those subject to the power / Francis B. Sayre --
6. Organized force, to discourage violent breaches of the peace, will be needed, but will be morally justified only by the justness of the social order thus sought to be maintained / Clyde Eagleton --
7. Durable peace is never achieved merely by military victory or by treaty. It depends upon a continuing course of conduct whereby peoples show understanding of and decent consideration toward each other's problems / William Scarlett --
VIII. Christians, as citizens, have an imperative duty to seek a post-war order which will reflect such great truths as have been outlined / Harry Emerson Fosdick --
Appendix. Statement of guiding principles.
Responsibility: articles by John Foster Dulles, William Ernest Hocking, Henry P. Van Dusen [and others] ; ... approved for publication by the Commission to Study the Bases of a Just and Durable Peace ...
