"'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.
