COSTA, Lucas Aparecido. For a social Christianity: the Christians proposal - the weekly publication Brasil, Urgente (1963-1964). Estud. hist. (Rio J.) [online]. 2012, vol.25, n.49, pp.190-208. ISSN 0103-2186. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-21862012000100012.
Based on the analysis of certain editorials of the weekly publication Brazil, Urgent (1963-1964), this article attempts some interpretations concerning the content transmitted by that weekly paper of Christian inspiration. With the objective of being legitimated before the social movements that also defended the human being's rights, the newspaper used various and inconstant resources. Thus, the pluralism of ideas, which was present in the combative pages of Brazil, Urgent, varied from a defensive posture of the third path to an option of faith reoriented by the rationality of the social praxis.
