"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 book is a notable and a fascinating contribution to the literature of religion in general and to the literature of Anglicanism in particular. In it the bishops of the whole Anglican Communion speak, and, in speaking, endeavour to teach the doctrine of the apostles, in whose fellowship they continue steadfast. .... The comprehensive character of the book is shown not only by the inclusive list of its episcopal contributors but also by the subjects it covers. The subjects include all of the seasons and holy days of the Christian Year; the Sacraments; all important occasional services, such as Christian Burial and the Dedication of a Church; and virtually every aspect of the relationship of the Church to the modern world and the contemporary life of the individual, including Missions, Stewardship, Labor, the Armed Forces, Sickness and Death. The book, in other words, views the whole of life in the modern world from the vantage point of the Christian religion". -- Preface.

Article begins with brief introduction to author Bishop Stephen Neill on p. . This article was originally "A public lecture given at Trinity College, Toronto, on 29 March 1962, to commemorate the centenary of the birth of Bishop Brent (9 April 1862)" (p. ).
An assessment of the life, career and significance of Bishop Charles Brent. Brent was born in Canada and ordained by the Bishop of Toronto before leaving to serve the Episcopal Church as a parish priest in Boston and then as Bishop in the Philippines (1901-1919) and Bishop of Western New York (1919-1927). The author describes two main mission fields that Brent focused on while in the Philippines. 'In the first place, there was the increasingly large number of Americans serving in the army or concerned with the civil administration of the country" (p.. 29). One of these men was "William Henry Taft, Governor-General of the Philippines, whose action turned a missionary bishop into an international figure" (p. 2). "Brent's other field was among the mountain peoples [the Igorots], who had as yet never been touched by the Gospel" (p. 29). But, "Brent missed one opportunity. The political discontent of the Filipinos was matched by discontent with the Roman Catholic church and its failure to develop and indigenous priesthood and hierarchy. At the head of this movement of discontent stood two remarkable men, Isabelo de los Reyes, a layman, and Father Aglipay, a priest. Failing to find any satisfaction in the Roman Church, these men and their followers were led eventually to form the Philippine Independent Church, commonly called the Aglipayan Church. It is curious that, in all the material on Brent that has passed though my hands during the preparation of this lecture, I have found no reference at all to Aglipay and his movement (p. 29-30). While serving in the Philippines Brent became involved in work to stop the international drug trade. Brent's most important legacy began with his selection "as one of the twenty-one representatives of the American Episcopal Church to attend the first World Missionary Conference held at Edinburgh in the summer of 1910, and that he should be chosen to address the great assembly on the sufficiency of God" (p. 33). It was at the 1910 conference Neill believes that "Though no one knew it at the time, 'Faith and Order' had been born" (p. 35). The First World Conference on Faith and Order met at Lausanne, Switzerland, in August 1927. "Three hundred and eighty-five men and women from one hundred and eight churches had assembled" (p. 37). "The exact extent of Brent's contribution to the Conference will never be known, unless his diaries are published in full. ... He preached the opening sermon. He presided whenever his health allowed it" (p. 37). Speaking of Lausanne, Neill says: "But the really great thing that had happened was that the Conference had met. Christians from the most varied backgrounds had come together and made friends; under all the disagreements -- and there was no tendency at all to forget the disagreements or to play them down -- they had discovered the range and the power of Christian agreement. This was a Christian conference" (p. 39).

"This booklet is a study document which is an expression of the opinions of the authors. It carried no authority beyond that unless it has been considered and affirmed by the Anglican Consultative Council". p. [i].
"This is the first of a study series on Doctrinal and Pastoral matters prepared by the Anglican Consultative Council." -- p. .
"The Trinidad meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council suggested that there was a need for an International Anglican Doctrinal Commission. The next meeting in Canada implemented the suggestion and asked Standing Committee to recommend to the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Secretary General the possible membership of the Commission and also the subjects for its enquiry after consultation with the Provinces of the Communion. .... Concern was expressed by one or two Provinces about the Lambeth Quadrilateral as a standard of faith, especially in these days of Ecumenical Dialogues. It was judged best to treat this as a separate study. Professor John F. Woolverton of Virginia Seminary was asked to write a paper based on research that he has done on the Quadrilateral. Bishop Stephen Neill, the other leading authority was asked to comment, together with the Bishop of Coventry, and Dr. Jaci Maraschin. .... These papers are now offered for consideration by the Anglican Consultative Council at its 1984 meeting, together with the Resolution of General Convention of the Episcopal Church of the United States of America meeting in New Orleans in 1982". -- Foreword.

"There are many ways of expressing what it means to be a Christian, but every one of them leads up to this truth 'that the Christian must daily grow more like Jesus Christ'. Bishop Neill considers in practical terms how the Christian may consciously make this his aim in his everyday life. He looks at the life of the Christian as the New Testament sees it and then most pointedly applies that teaching to life to-day". -- front dust jacket blurb.

"Bishop Neill has wisely refrained from producing 'yet another introduction to the non-Christian religions'. Rather this is 'an attempt to understand them in their contemporary crises, and to make an assessment of them from a Christian standpoint'. The method is that of dialogue, and the aim is not to delineate other faiths from without, but to enter 'into the heart and spirit of another religion', yet without disloyalty to one's own, seeking what is positive in them, and the questions they may rightly ask of Christianity, as well as the pertinent questions about God and man which Christians may put to them. Chapters are devoted, not only to Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism, but also to the faith of contemporary primitive peoples, and to two modern Western 'gospels', Marxist Communism and Existentialism". -- front dust jacket blurb.

This volume "represents the first attempt in English to provide a readable history of the worldwide expansion of all the Christian denominations -- Roman Catholic, Orthodox, Anglican and Protestant. Bishop Neill, with an industry which has deterred many historians, has gathered together the most important material from the great mass of evidence in many languages: he gives a clear outline of the greatest and most sustained campaign in the propagation of a faith and and idea that the world has ever experiences. This massive, and at times heroic, chronicle comes up to the year 1962". -- back cover.
