"The purpose of this book is to offer a survey of the whole Anglican Communion. A short time ago Canon McLeod Campbell, in his fascinating 'Christian History in the Making', traced the history of that Communion in the course of its formation. We wish to take up the story where he left it, and to present a bird's-eye view of the finished product, or at least of that product at the stage of development it has reached to-day. It is hoped that the publication will at least be found timely. The meetings of the Lambeth Conference have always been important since their inception in 1867. .... Also it should help the various branches of the Anglican Communion to know each other better. Such knowledge is all too obviously lacking at the moment. .... The following survey should thus lead to a more exact and widespread knowledge of what the Anglican Communion us. There will be some gain if it is no longer confused with the Church of England. It includes the Church, but is not identical with it." -- Intro., p. vii.

"This study book is bound to awake the greatest interest because it deals with an exciting subject, and is written by those who know the subject at first hand. .... Among the forces from other countries which are active in Africa today are the influences of communism, of Christian missions, and of Islam. To which of these will Africans turn ? For the development of Africa will continue to depend upon fellowship with the rest of the world. No country can live to itself. .... One of the most important forces in Africa is, of course, the Christian Church, and our Churches in our own country are able to co-operate with Africans through our missionary interest in the Church. You will find here, the record of evangelism and pastoral care, the work of education in Christian schools, and the work of healing in Christian hospitals; a work which we are bound to reinforce with our prayer and our understanding and our assistance. I believe that the leadership is there in Africa; I have been deeply impressed by the splendid African bishops whom I have met at various conferences, but they still need our co-operation". -- Foreword.

"In recent years with the accelerated growth of the Anglican Communion and the rapid establishment of new dioceses and missionary areas, the problems confronting the Church have likewise increased. It became clear to many that intervals of ten years or more between Lambeth Conferences gave the Churches insufficient opportunity to take common counsel in the face of the rapidly changing problems of the modern age. Moreover, since in our national Churches the priests and members of the laity share with the bishops the responsibility of decision in matters affecting our welfare, it was inevitable that there should come about a recognition that the clerical and lay representatives should share with the bishops the responsibilities of international gatherings. The Lambeth Conference of 1948 welcomed the suggestion 'that a Congress representative of the Anglican Communion be held'. No such comparable gathering had taken place since the Pan-Anglican Congress held in London in 1908, and accordingly the General Convention of the Protestant Episcopal Church in 1949 extended an invitation for such a Congress to meet in the United States. The offer of hospitality graciously extended by the Bishop and the Diocese of Minnesota was accepted. Invited to the Congress were the bishops of each diocese and missionary district of the Communion, together with one priest and one lay delegate from each. The Anglican Congress of 1954 marks a new era in the history of the Anglican Communion in that it is the first representative gathering of the Church held outside the British Isles". -- Intro., p. 2-3.
