"By Stephen Fielding Bayne, Jr., Executive Office of the Anglican Communion 1960-1964".
"The official and personal papers assembled by Bishop Bayne in this volume provide essential records of a crucial and exciting development in the history and contemporary mission of the Anglican Communion throughout the world. Chosen to be the first churchman for the unprecedented position of Executive Officer of the Anglican Communion, Bishop Bayne gives in these chapters an illuminating account of the background of his office, the ways and means whereby he has built its service and work into the structure and life of the eighteen Anglican Churches of every continent and island. With creative imagination and insight, he points out directions for the future of these Churches -- their closer fellowship and interdependence, their missionary opportunities, and their larger involvement in the renewal and reunion of all Christendom". -- front dust jacket blurb.
