Ten chapters, written from the perspective of bishops from the "Two Thirds World" who attended the 1988 Lambeth Conference, on a wide range of subjects. The authors, two presbyters from the Church of South India and Church of England, attended the conference. "We listened to every debate in the plenary sessions from a bird's eye vantage point in the press gallery, and we asked questions in every press conference. For the greater part of each day, we sat with bishops in the coffee lounges and in their rooms. We interviewed them about their perspectives on the Conference in conversations between half an hour and an hour's length; these we taped with their permission and have had transcribed. We are most grateful to the seventy-five bishops, archbishops, presiding bishops, bishops' wives, consultants, members of the Anglican Consultative Council and its staff from every continent who spared us time out of their punishing schedules. We are also grateful to the twenty bishops, including the Archbishop of Canterbury, who, after Lambeth, took time to complete our informal questionnaire on their perspectives on the Conference". -- Intro., pp. 2-3.
