For Justice and Enduring Peace

Author: Jessica M. Smith

Epilogue by The Rev. Dr. Susan T. Henry-Crowe

Since the beginning of the Methodist movement, “the people called Methodists” have spoken to the issues of the day as an expression of the Wesleyan commitment to social holiness.  For Justice and Enduring Peace traces more clearly the interactions of major social movements in society in the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, highlights how United Methodists engage in the life of social witness, and demonstrates how the General Board of Church and Society of The United Methodist Church upholds the Wesleyan commitment to society holiness through witnessing to just social policies and practices.

Addressing more than 30 social issues on which The United Methodist Church has claimed a position, Church and Society communicates with policymakers and leaders around the world with the mission of transforming the world.  This 100-year commemorative book uses archival materials from the agency’s historic publications to tell the story.
