"When the Advisory Council on Missionary Strategy met at Lambeth Palace in July 1956, it had before it for consideration some memoranda on Missionary Strategy. Of these the longest and weightiest was an essay by Canon M.A.C. Warren, D.D., General Secretary of the Church Missionary Society. This essay was regarded as of great importance and value. On a number of points criticism and suggestions for its improvement were offered and these were subsequently conveyed to Canon Warren with the request that he would revise his essay in the light of the comments made by the Advisory Council and would incorporate much of the other memoranda as was relevant. This report is therefore the work of Canon Warren both in its form and its present revision. But it has had the benefit of discussion by the Advisory Council and was recommended by the Council for publication as a preparatory document for the Lambeth Conference 1958". -- Foreword.
