"'What is the Church doing ? Engaging in debate -- on canons, liturgical revision, parson's freehold, relationship with the State, new morality, re-union, and what have you. Talk , talk, talk !' .... But behind the talk there goes on, quietly and more often than not unnoticed by the press and public, the steady work of compassion by which the Church has been characterised ever since it received its commission from its divine Lord. .... The value of this book is that it tells, simply and straightforwardly, the story of how the Church of England is meeting her Lord's challenge in certain spheres. And a wonderful story it is. Work among would-be suicides, the nervously and mentally distressed, alcoholics, victims of vice, prisoners, the mentally feeble, and so on -- it passes before us as we read these chapters in a series of vivid pictures". --Foreword.

Robert Addison's library : a short-title catalogue of the books brought to Upper Canada in 1792 by the first missionary sent out to the Niagara Frontier by the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel
"[C]ompiled by William J. Cameron and George McKnight with the assistance of Michaele-Sue Goldblatt".
Includes bibliographical references.
"[O]ne of the first books that Addison added to the splendid collection of 16th, 17th, and 18th century volumes that he brought with him to Canada can probably be read as a comment on his experience in a new land. During the 37 years remaining to him, Addison was to add many another book that reflects the history of his own life and of his own locality -- Niagara-on-the-lake and the Niagara peninsula. Most of these books have been omitted from this catalogue, however, by the simple expedient of excluding all books printed after 1791 that are still to be found in the library kept at the Rectory of St. Mark's Church, Niagara-on-the-lake. The cataloguing of these post-1791 acquisitions must be left to other hands, for our purpose in this catalogue is to identify as accurately as possible the original library that Addison brought from England when the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts sent him out to Niagara as a 'proper person' to be their first missionary in the area. This preface is an attempt to analyse that library and to describe how it came to be built during the century before Addison set out on his historic journey". -- Preface.
