"By David M. Paton".
At head of title: Star books. At head of cover title: Star books on reunion.
"General Editor: The Bishop of Bristol i.e. Oliver Tomkins". -- front cover.
"London: A.R. Mowbray and Co. Limited. New York: Morehouse-Barlow Co."
"Copyright A.R. Mowbray and Co. Limited, 1962. First published in 1962. Second impression, 1963". -- verso of t.-p.
"The first edition of this book (published in November, 1962) had a preface in which I attempted to indicate the kind of book I had written. Since then, a number of things have happened in the unity field. Ideally, many parts of the book should be rewritten to bring it up to date again. This is for various reasons impractical at the moment, and it seems best, therefore, to replace the original preface with a fresh one in which I can note the more important developments during the past year. At the Anglican Congress in Toronto and the meetings at Huron College which preceded it, the Anglican Communion re-defined its essential ecumenical role. The document 'Mutual Responsibility and Interdependence in the Body of Christ', if acted upon by the several Anglican Churches, will be of creative importance." -- Author's Preface to the Second Edition.
Contents: Introduction / Oliver Bristol i.e. Oliver Tomkins, Bishop of Bristol -- Dedication -- Author's Preface to the Second Edition dated Michaelmas Day i.e. 29 September, 1963 / David M. Paton -- The Anglican Dilemma -- The Role of the Anglican Communion -- Anglicans and Unity: A Survey -- Questions for Anglican -- The Importance of Unity.

Notes
The reviewer, Episcopal Bishop of North Dakota, is a great admirer of Allen's writing and ideas which resonates with his own experience with Alaskan Eskimo and Indian congregations. "Allen's works were republished in the early 1960s, and since then have attracted the interest of church leaders who see a strong contemporary need for reform of ministry. Basically the need is seen as a movement from ownership of ministry by a professional elite and captivity by a particular dominant culture to authentic expression, participation, and leadership of Christians locally gathered."

"The present selection from the writings of Roland Allen is designed as a companion volume to 'Missionary Methods: St. Paul's or Ours ?' (first published 1912, revised 1927, and now in its fifth edition) and 'The Spontaneous Explosion of the Church and the Causes which Hinder it' (first published 1927, and now in its fourth edition), both also published by the World Dominion Press. It contains full or abbreviated texts of those of his other writings which, after careful study and discussion, seemed likely to be most useful. They have all been long out out of print, and most of them are now unobtainable even to persistent advertisers. Some editing has been necessary; but we have distinguished carefully between our work and Allen's". -- Foreword.

"Published for the World Council of Churches Commission on World Mission and Evangelism by Edinburgh House Press".
"First published 1965. Second impression 1965". -- verso of t.-p.
"The question is not, 'What special and exceptional arrangements must we make in order to keep the traditional pattern of the ministry from breaking under the new strains ?' The question is, 'What pattern of ministry in the new circumstances into which God has thrust is, is the pattern of ministry which is proper to the nature of the Church as God's apostolic community in this world ?' This requires us to submit our traditional patterns, however hallowed by custom, to fresh scrutiny in the light of the Word of God, and in the light of a realistic understanding of the situation in which the Church's mission has to be discharged in the present day. When this is done it may well be that, in certain circumstances, the 'non-professional;', ministry will be seen to be the essential ministry, and that of the full-time professional the 'auxiliary' or 'supplementary'. That is, of course, only a possibility and by no means a certainty. What is certain is that the question of the form of the ministry can only be rightly answered on the basis of an understanding of the nature of the Church which is in conformity with the biblical doctrine of the Church as a missionary community". -- Preface.
