In this sequel to Amsterdam to Nairobi, Ernest Lefever examines the behavior of the WCC since 1975 and the reasons for its continuing revolutionary stance. He finds that its official pronouncements on international issues-from Afghanistan and nuclear arms to Nicaragua and southern Africa-have much more closely reflected the aims of the Soviet Union than those of the West. It has given nearly $7 million to revolutionary causes. Lefever concludes that the WCC has lost sight of its original spiritual and social vision.
