Two generations after its writing, Christianity and Social Order still resonates with wisdom for the contemporary Church. Temple's prophetic socio-economic voice is rooted in his unified vision of God's creation: "All Christian thinking, and Christian thinking about society no less than any other, must begin not with man but with God." Temple tends to view compartmentalization less as a benign vehicle for efficiency and more as a potential source of idolatry. When life is fragmented into separate endeavors, any one of those endeavors may come to supplant the place of God. According to Temple "we do in practice tend to put pleasure, or comfort, or wealth, or power, in a position which gives it sovereignty.... This is idolatry.... To believe in God falsely conceived may easily be worse than to disbelieve in Him altogether. For we tend to become like that which we worship." Temple himself identifies one of the symptoms of human formation in the image of the market: "it offers a perpetual suggestion in the direction of combative self-assertiveness."

Temple is no idealist. He does not suppose that humans will be able to construct an economic order that thrives on benevolence and good will. To the contrary, "a statesman who supposes that a mass of citizens can be governed without appeal to their self-interest is living in dreamland and is a public menace." However a realistic view of self-interest is not the same as promoting an economic order that perpetually prods people towards combativeness.

As bold as Temple is in subordinating market interests to Christian interests, he is strikingly humble about the possibility of institutional Christianity endorsing particular policies to address economic problems. Temple is surely right that Christians have no special policy insight by virtue of their baptism and often "lack the specialist knowledge required." However this recognition could just as easily spur the Church to greater education and activity. Indeed, the Church's incarnational vocation seems to call for greater presence and greater activity.

The theology, of course, was excellent, though perhaps dated. The font size made reading important material difficult.
