"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.

"At the invitation of the Anglican Province of Korea, over 30 members of the Anglican Peace and Justice Network (APJN), representing 24 Provinces of the Anglican Communion, met on the grounds of Yonsei University in Seoul, Korea, from April 14 to April 21, 1999. .... In this summary of the meeting, the committee reports are presented first, followed by in-depth reports from the Provinces and some Dioceses of the Communion. .... There are also the immediate, active concerns of the APJN as a collective sounding board for the Communion. There are two papers on`Alternatives to War', in light of the international involvement in Kosovo and potential involvement elsewhere. And there is attention paid to problems in Korea, the host country. The group considered the problem of `Korean Re-Unification', and lifted up the ways in which the Christian churches are attempting to become partners in a healing process. Members of APJN made a visit to the DMZ, the dividing line between the estranged nations of the peninsula. And they considered ways to continue the dialogue, launched at Lambeth in 1998, of the church with its gay and lesbian members in a `Panel on Homosexuality'." -- Coming to Seoul, p. 3.

Fifteen essays by 16 contributors which address "some of the key questions facing the Anglican Communion: What does it mean for a family of churches historically identified with the Church of England that the majority of Anglicans today are from the South with very different cultures from that of the English ? What does it mean that contemporary global Anglicanism is increasingly moving away from the cultural, political, and economic hegemony of Anglo-American colonialism ?" -- Intro., p. 11.

"As advertised the general subject of the Lectures was given as 'Some Problems of Mission in the Contemporary World'. If they appear under a somewhat different title that is because something a little more compact was called for, and the change makes it possible to indicate, what the original title did not, that the Lectures were primarily concerned to illustrate the situation in Africa today. .... I would wish, in particular, to underline the word 'today' in the title. It is of the Africa of today, of the year 1963, that these Lectures treated, not of the Africa of yesterday or of tomorrow. The Africa of today is in revolt against the Africa of yesterday. No one can yet foresee the Africa of tomorrow. But perhaps some service to greater understanding, some encouragement to more sustained prayer, can be given by looking at the Africa of today". -- Foreword.
The author "first tackles urbanisation as a modern development and the stupendous changes now occurring amongst the primitive peoples of Africa. Next he turns to African Nationalism, including African disenchantment with the West and the new difficulties this creates for the western oriented Christian Church. Finally he writes on church status in Africa where the priesthood, following the pattern set by white missionaries, has the characteristics of chieftainship instead of service". -- back cover.
Contents: Foreword / M.A.C. Warren -- I. The significance of Urbanisation in Africa and Asia and the Consequent Challenge to the Church -- II. The Disenchanted -- III. Church structures and Evangelism.
