Christian concern for one's fellow man finds its roots in the example for all Christian living, in Christ Himself. As He was vitally concerned about the welfare of His contemporaries, so Christians through-out the ages have tried to reflect a similar concern for their contemporaries. Christians desire that all men come to a knowledge of Christ Jesus as the Savior and Redeemer of the world, Who brings a new way of life both in this world and in the world to come. Whenever a follower of Christ sees acts of delinquency, he becomes concerned because he recognizes them as results of the rule of Satan in the world. The Christian is also aware of the concern of others about the problem of juvenile delinquency in the world. It is recognized by Christians and non-Christians alike that juvenile delinquents must be rehabilitated in order to function as worthwhile members of society. This paper comprises an examination of recent trends in the rehabilitation of juvenile delinquents in the light of the church’s responsibility in this area. Implicit in the study is the assessment of the church's development of a specific program of institutional rehabilitation of juvenile delinquents.
