"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.

"The idea for this book arose originally out of the planning which was being done for the Anglican Congress of 1963. The publication of a small volume, setting forth the subjects that will concern Congress delegates, seemed eminently reasonable. With chapters written by men with particular competence to deal with their respective subjects, it would provide a good background for the discussions and deliberations of those who met together from all parts of the Anglican Communion. .... Therefore, the various authors wrote their chapters with ordinary Church members in mind, all those who are endeavouring to find the frontiers, plan the strategy, and help the Church fulfil its destiny. And it is our hope that 'The Church in the 60's' will, in some measure perhaps, assist the reader in his share of the work. This book has also been written with the small parish group in mind. A leader's guide is available to help groups on the parochial level explore the frontiers of the parish in religious, political, and cultural areas of the modern world. It may also assist them in considering effective parish mobilization and strategy and aid them in fulfilling their vocation and destiny in the Anglican Communion". -- Preface.

"The conditions of modern life have caused both Church and State to re-examine their attitudes to marriage and divorce. On 1 January 1971 the Divorce Reform Act 1969 came into force -- an Act under which the concept of the matrimonial offence was abandoned and divorce based solely on the fact of irretrievable breakdown. The Church of England was already engaged in a reappraisal of its own attitude to marriage at the time when the new law first came up for consideration. 'Putting Asunder' (1966), the report of a Church of England group on the subject of the secular had a considerable influence on the framing of the 1969 Act. The Church's discipline with regard to the remarriage of divorced persons had come to be regarded by many as unsatisfactory, and in 1967 the Convocation of Canterbury asked for the whole subject to be examined and for a statement to be prepared on the Christian doctrine of marriage. The commission set up for this purpose by the Archbishop of Canterbury has considered past and present attitudes of the Christian Church to marriage and approaches the problem in terms of personal relationships rather than of theoretical assumptions". -- back cover.
