'Echoes Into Tomorrow' is a development of the first book 'Echoes from a Frozen Land'. It shared with us an historical record of a period of rapid and extraordinary change in our Canadian Arctic during this century. Donald B. Marsh kept records, wrote many articles authenticated by superb photography and artifacts and had basically put these into book form when accidental death in 1973 prevented this being accomplished, and terminated his service and devotion to his God and to the Eskimos. .... In 1950 he became the Second Bishop of the Arctic, a position which gave him greater influence and exposure in Canada and overseas to act as their advocate. The years 1950-1973 represent such a critical period in Arctic history and occupy much of the substance of the book". -- Foreword.

"The purpose of this book is twofold. It provides brief portraits of forty-eight bishops who were in office from about the time of the 1832 Reform Bill, when the Church of England as well as the nation as a whole entered a period of continuous change, until the final years of the twentieth century." -- Intro., p. .
Beeson "ends by asking why such able and interesting bishops are now in short supply and wonders whether the hectically busy managerial role assumed by the bishops of the new millennium represents a betrayal of the Episcopal office and a consequent weakening of the Church's witness in an incredibly secularized society. Looking not far ahead, the likely impact of women bishops is also discussed". -- back cover.

Includes bibliographical references and index.
This book "tells the stories of four Canadian bishops who embraced unpopular causes with their eyes wide open. Over the past 150 years, George Hills, David Somerville, Douglas Hambidge, and Michael Ingham encountered severe opposition as they fought for the rights of blacks, aboriginals, women, and gays and lesbians. One was at the centre of the only Anglican schism in Canadian history; two jeopardized their careers; and one was voted the sixth most important person of the twentieth century whose world view has transformed society". -- inside front cover.
