"Moral Re-Armament (MRA) , also called Buchmanism or Oxford Group, a modern, nondenominational revivalistic movement founded by American churchman Frank N. D. Buchman (1878–1961). It sought to deepen the spiritual life of individuals and encouraged participants to continue as members of their own churches. Primarily a Protestant movement, it was criticized by some Roman Catholic authorities and praised by others." "In its peak years after World War II, MRA sent “task forces” to all corners of the free world to carry on its program, in part through plays emphasizing cooperation, honesty, and mutual respect between opposing groups. It had headquarters and training centres at Mount Kisco, New York, U. S. ; Mackinac Island, Michigan, U. S. ; Caux, Switz. ; and Odawara, Japan. MRA always showed much interest in converting the influential and the rich and steadfastly opposed communism. Its theology was simple and conservative. It featured surrender to Jesus Christ and sharing with others whose lives have been changed in pursuit of four moral absolutes: purity, unselfishness, honesty, and love. The influence of the movement declined after the deaths of Buchman (1961) and his successor, Peter Howard (1965)." ; Signed by Author
