"Edited by J.W.C. Wand, D.D., Bishop of London, Formerly Archbishop of Brisbane".
Includes bibliographical references, p. 337-343.
"The purpose of this book is to offer a survey of the whole Anglican Communion. A short time ago Canon McLeod Campbell, in his fascinating 'Christian History in the Making', traced the history of that Communion in the course of its formation. We wish to take up the story where he left it, and to present a bird's-eye view of the finished product, or at least of that product at the stage of development it has reached to-day. It is hoped that the publication will at least be found timely. The meetings of the Lambeth Conference have always been important since their inception in 1867. .... Also it should help the various branches of the Anglican Communion to know each other better. Such knowledge is all too obviously lacking at the moment. .... The following survey should thus lead to a more exact and widespread knowledge of what the Anglican Communion us. There will be some gain if it is no longer confused with the Church of England. It includes the Church, but is not identical with it." -- Intro., p. vii.
