"This study book is bound to awake the greatest interest because it deals with an exciting subject, and is written by those who know the subject at first hand. .... Among the forces from other countries which are active in Africa today are the influences of communism, of Christian missions, and of Islam. To which of these will Africans turn ? For the development of Africa will continue to depend upon fellowship with the rest of the world. No country can live to itself. .... One of the most important forces in Africa is, of course, the Christian Church, and our Churches in our own country are able to co-operate with Africans through our missionary interest in the Church. You will find here, the record of evangelism and pastoral care, the work of education in Christian schools, and the work of healing in Christian hospitals; a work which we are bound to reinforce with our prayer and our understanding and our assistance. I believe that the leadership is there in Africa; I have been deeply impressed by the splendid African bishops whom I have met at various conferences, but they still need our co-operation". -- Foreword.
