"The present selection from the writings of Roland Allen is designed as a companion volume to 'Missionary Methods: St. Paul's or Ours ?' (first published 1912, revised 1927, and now in its fifth edition) and 'The Spontaneous Explosion of the Church and the Causes which Hinder it' (first published 1927, and now in its fourth edition), both also published by the World Dominion Press. It contains full or abbreviated texts of those of his other writings which, after careful study and discussion, seemed likely to be most useful. They have all been long out out of print, and most of them are now unobtainable even to persistent advertisers. Some editing has been necessary; but we have distinguished carefully between our work and Allen's". -- Foreword.
