"This book contains information designed to be of practical service to the Churches of the Anglican Communion in every part of the world. It is the outcome of the meetings of two bodies in London, Ontario, during the week before the Anglican Congress in Toronto in August 1963: The Advisory Council on Missionary Strategy and the Consultative Body of the Lambeth Conference. The latter consists of the primates of the various Anglican Churches, and its decision to meet every two years marks a step forward in the cohesion of the Anglican Communion". -- Foreword, p. vii.
"This volume contains the essential documents prepared at the Missionary Executives' Conference and the Meeting of the Anglican Council of Missionary Strategy in London, Ontario, before the Toronto Congress of 1963. It includes, and provides the background of, the document `Mutual Responsibility and Interdependence in the Body of Christ', welcomed for serious study by the Congress, and explains its immediate implications for Anglican thinking, action, and development. Of all the publications in connection with the Anglican Congress, it is this, most of all, that calls for urgent study and discussions, for upon this the rebirth of the Anglican Communion, called for at Toronto, must be based". -- back cover.
