"The following pages give some account of the work of the Spirit as He moves in the life of the Anglican Communion to-day. It is culled from recent reports sent in by the bishops and from other accounts of the life of the Church in many parts of the world. It is bound to be incomplete; but if it stimulates all who read it to further prayer and giving and to a more dedicated discipleship to Jesus Christ, it will serve its purpose. In 1958 the bishops will meet together for the Lambeth Conference. The success of the Conference will depend in no small degree upon the informed prayer of Churchpeople throughout the world. This book is intended to help all those who wish to join in prayer that the Spirit may guide the bishops and the whole Church in this difficult but creative time in human history". -- Foreword.
