Notes
"Art work by Geraldine Ransom".
"Issued jointly by the National Council, Protestant Episcopal Church, New York 10, New York and the Missionary Society of the Anglican Church of Canada, Toronto 5, Ontario".
"We are grateful indeed to all the authors of this book who responded so willingly and promptly to the request of the Joint Study Book Committee to supply chapters on their particular areas of responsibility". -- Acknowledgements.
"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.

Administrative History
The Missionary Society of the Church of England in Canada (MSCC) was formed in September 1902 by the General Synod. The Society was created for the general missionary work of the Church and aimed to bring all members of the Church into the field of action by making them members of the Society. The work of the Society was under the charge of the Board of Missions, consisting of all members of the General Synod. The executive work of the Board of Missions was done by the Board of Management composed of the Bishops, two clergy and two laymen elected by each diocese. Administratively, the MSCC was run by a General Secretary who guided the Field Secretary and various committees in their work. Its last General Secretary resigned in 1969. The MSCC Board of Management still exists under Canon VII, convenes during General Synod, and produces financial statements because of ongoing MSCC legacies and trusts.
The work of the MSCC consisted of domestic and foreign missions. In Canada the work included assisting missionary dioceses, Indian and Eskimo work, Columbia Coast Mission, Church Camp Missions, Jewish Missions, Japanese Missions, Immigration chaplaincies, white settlers missions, and Indian Residential Schools. Foreign missions included church, medical, and education work in Japan, China, India, Palestine (Jerusalem), and Egypt.
The forerunners of the MSCC were the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society (1883-1902) and the Canadian Church Missionary Society (1894-1903), both of whom were already supporting domestic and foreign missionaries. By the side of the DFMS stood the Woman's Auxiliary (1885-1966), organized in 1885 for the purpose of enlisting the women in the missionary effort of the Church. When the MSCC was formed it became the Woman's Auxiliary to the MSCC.
