"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.

Each of these six Reports is followed by a set of questions, and it is suggested that they would form a suitable programme of study for Lent". -- Preface, p. vii.

At head of title: Lambeth Conference 1978 : preparatory articles.
"Copyright 1977 The Secretary General of the Anglican Consultative Council".
"This book of essays aims to help the Anglican bishops in their preparation for the Lambeth Conference of 1978. The Conference will engage in prayer and study, and in the sharing of experience. The main object will not be to make pronouncements, but to reflect on the gospel and ministry in which each bishop is involved, and which he shares with the whole People of God." -- Preface.
"This volume of Preparatory Articles contains 40 contributions from writers from every Continent, not all of whom are Anglicans. The essays are designed to inform and to stimulate, but not to prescribe. Each subject has been treated as the author wished. No editorial effort has been made to try and achieve uniformity of presentation. As a whole the book provides a broad canvas for subjects that the Conference will discuss, and is one that many Christians will read with enjoyment and profit". -- back cover.

"The goal of the technological revolution is, in many ways, freedom. Freedom from the necessities which natures imposes on us. We can now go further and faster, live longer and more healthily, than we could without technology. Technology frees us from a whole range of constraints. But we are not all equal beneficiaries of his new freedom".
