"This study guide was the concept of the Diocesan Board of Anglican Church Women for the Diocese of Nova Scotia, as a means of increasing awareness within their membership of the wider world of the Anglican Communion. .... The Diocese of Port Moresby could not be looked at in isolation, but rather within the wider context of the Anglican Church of Papua New Guinea, and of the people and the nation which comprise that church. The materials included are intended to give a general overview of the life and work of the Anglican Church of Papua New Guinea, its history, and the challenges that it faces. As well, we have included information on this fascinating country and its people and some of the social concerns that they are dealing with." -- Intro. leaf [ii].
