Some Christians want to bring 'social action' right to the centre of Christian activity, so much so that anyone who suggests that we evangelism may be a higher or more central priority risks being labeled heartless.
Others see any push for Christian social involvement at a worrying attempt to water down the priority of evangelism.

the two articles in this MiniZine will help you to examine God's priorities as you think through this important question.
