IN CHOOSING such a topic, my intention is
not in the least "nationalistic" or "cultural." What is happening in Russia today is of
interest to us in America not specifically as something "Russian,"
but as something that concerns the human soul, no matter what kind of blood or
cultural background a man might have. And we in America
and the free world in general have much to learn from what is happening to the
human soul in Russia
today. This is true both because the situation of the human soul in
Russia and the West is really quite similar in basic respects, because the same
historical process is occurring there as here; and because there are also basic
differences in our situation, and an awareness of these differences can help to
strengthen us—and specifically, to strengthen us in Christian faith.
I will speak first of the similarities.
