"For seven consecutive years, 1933 to 1939, the Missionary Council issued Unified Statements, which surveyed the work of the Anglican Communion throughout the world. These were based on letters from the Bishops of Overseas Dioceses, who reported special needs and noteworthy events. The letters were carefully edited by eight Area Committees, composed of representatives of all the Societies concerned, with first-hand knowledge of the respective areas. Statistics provided by all the Anglican Missionary Societies were added showing their revenue and estimated expenditure. The book was then carefully scrutinised by the Missionary Council, and afterwards submitted to the Church Assembly. It was issued with the Church Assembly imprimatur, and a Foreword by the Archbishop of Canterbury, and was published by the Press and Publications Board. .... The present volume cannot lay claim to the authority of its predecessors. Correspondence with the Bishops overseas has been exposed to many risks and delays, and could not be as complete as in former years. Area Committees have been unable to meet. The paper shortage has made it impossible to circulate proofs to the Missionary Council, who cannot therefore be held responsible for the contents. The book has not been laid before the Church Assembly. It has, however, been decided to retain the sub-title 'Unified Statement' as indicating the scope and intention of the Survey, and to regard this as the War number of the series, produced under war-time conditions, in answer to the frequent inquiry, 'What of the World-wide Church in war-time ?'

"The Missionary Council's Unified Statement for 1944 differs in several respects from its predecessors in the series. Previous issues were intended to give the Church at home a conspectus of the current needs, opportunities and achievements of the Church in all parts of the world, as reported in the year's correspondence with the Bishops of the overseas dioceses. .... 'Man-power in the Twentieth-Century Church', as its name implies, concentrates on the one subject of reinforcements. It is primarily addressed to those not yet in close contact with the work of the Church overseas. Conditions of publication in war-time have made it impossible for the Missionary Council to assume its usual collective responsibility for the text. .... Canon Campbell, the Secretary of the Council, was asked to do this, and I am sure that all who read 'Man-power in the Twentieth-Century Church' will be grateful to him for the way in which he has dealt with the subject. He has given us a Report which is as interesting as it is valuable". -- Foreword.
