This volume contains 11 reports with the minutes of the Protestant Church Council of Germany from the years 1954/1955. The texts are thoroughly annotated. The themes taken up in the meetings held during this period were discussed in part with great controversy, ranging from atom-bomb tests to the many problems connected with church work abroad to the revising of Bible texts for new versions; from church finances and the situation of the East German church to the disciplinary rules of the church; from the future role of church pastoral care in the military to the question of whether pastors should serve at all in the military; from church opinions on legal matters of marriage to family law. The extensive indices made the volume easy to access.
