About-

Michael Elliott has had a more than unusually varied career. Born in New Zealand, he first did postgraduate studies in Boston with Harvey Cox and Joseph Fletcher, at the same time joining the Berrigan brothers in protest action against the Vietnam War and taking part on a march on Washington. He then moved to London's South Bank to work with Bishop John Robinson in the inner city, from where he went with the Church Missionary Society to the Middle East, before returning to England to work in race relations. Eventually back home in New Zealand, he worked in development education, which also involved a stay in Cuba.

From all this has grown his book. It is not an autobiography, but rather the beginning of a handbook for activists, indicating the issues that need to be addressed and the strategies that need to be tested by Christians in the modern world. Firmly rooted in the Bible, written in the tradition of liberation theology but arising out of the living conditions of the United States and Britain, it offers specific guidelines for the thought and practice of Christians who are dissatisfied with the world and the churches as they are today.
