The author "has written a definitive history of the First Lambeth Conference, giving the story not only of the Conference itself but of the stirrings in the different parts of the Anglican Communion which led to its being planned, and in so doing he corrects misconceptions about the ecclesiastical events of the period which histories of the Church have commonly encouraged. The beginnings of the Lambeth Conference are of importance for understanding the growth of self-awareness in the Anglican Communion and of synodical government in Anglican provinces beyond the British Isles. It was a far more significant event that has hitherto been realized. This book is published in the centenary year of the Conference, and on the eve of the Conference of 1968". -- inside dust jacket blurb.
"As is so often in history, the begetters of the First Lambeth Conference created something very different from what they had intended. There came from Canada the desire for an Anglican Synod or Council which would speak with authority on the doctrinal turmoil of the time and would cleanse and protect the Anglican Church from insidious teaching. Instead there was inaugurated a series of Conferences of such a character as to prove through a century that there can be no Pan-Anglican authoritative Synod and no Anglican Patriarchate, but a family of Churches able to advise one another collectively on the understanding of the Faith and of the Church's contemporary needs and tasks while possessing no organ of formal authority other than that of the Synods of each Anglican Church. The desire for a formal authority collapsed, but through the series of Lambeth Conferences, a growing, undefined, moral authority has been felt, always within the Anglican Churches and sometimes beyond them". -- Foreword, p. [xiii].
"The Lambeth Conference is an assembly of archbishops and bishops from the whole Anglican Communion, which meets, at intervals of roughly ten years, in Lambeth Palace, London, under the presidency of the Archbishop of Canterbury. This episcopal gathering was named a 'conference' by Archbishop Charles Thomas Longley at its first calling in 1867, and this designation has been retained ever since; because it has never been, strictly speaking, a 'synod' or 'council' of the Church, but is more aptly described as a 'quasi-conciliar body'.
