"The following pages contain what I sincerely hope is a fair account of the Anglican Congress of 1963. In addition to the sermons and formal addresses, reproduced in as accurate and definitive a form as time and circumstances permit. I have included both the group 'findings' as officially reported to the full Congress and a wide selection of informal speeches and comments made in the plenary sessions or sent in from the groups. I have also attempted a brief preliminary interpretation of the Congress as I saw it and felt its impact. It was the express wish of the Editorial Committee that the record of the Toronto Congress should include these elements of personal reporting and commentary and I have tried to carry out my assignment without worrying unduly about the criticisms that such an impressionistic account must necessarily invite". -- Preface, p. xv.

"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.
