Notes
"This book is an assessment of the 1988 Lambeth Conference in terms of its significance for bishops from the Two Thirds World". "I found this book raised many interesting issues, even though I did not feel it was particularly well written, and too often it simply chronicles a series of different viewpoints without evaluating the differences and similarities between them in any depth. The debate about women's ordination is handled with undue brevity, but perhaps reflects the fact that it was not a major issue for Two Thirds World bishops (though the authors surprisingly fail to note that women have been ordained in Uganda). The book is important because it chronicles a major ongoing influence in the Anglican Communion."

Prologue
The Primate indicated the hope that it will be possible for the Bishops' wives to accompany their husbands to England at the time of the Lambeth Conference and requested suggestions re wives' participation in the Conference.
The Primate described the role of Suffragan Bishops in England. He said that, in some instances, Suffragans are territorial Bishops who are active in Diocesan activities and meet as a College of Bishops, while in other situations, they work under the Diocesan's authority. The Primate said that Australia shares the same tradition, while in Africa that pattern has been to create more dioceses.
The Primate said that there is a desire to have more representation from India at the 1988 Lambeth Conference.
Text
We recognize that the numbers and the duties and functions of Suffragan Bishops vary widely in different Provinces of the Anglican Communion.
However, in the Anglican Church of Canada, Suffragan Bishops are very few in number, and share fully in every aspect of episcopal and synodical ministry.
Therefore, the National House of Bishops requests that our Canadian Suffragan Bishops be invited to full and equal participation in the 1988 Lambeth Conference, without prejudice to other decisions about the attendance of Suffragans which may be made with regard to other Anglican Provinces.
