"This study of mission and evangelism is part of a theses presented by the Rev. Robert Bashford for the degree of M.Phil. (CNAA), which he was awarded in 1989. .... The main body of the thesis ... concentrated on interdenominational evangelistic efforts in Britain. and on the special role played by the Church of England as the national church. It is this part of the thesis that Latimer House is publishing as a Latimer Study. As the Anglican Communion embarks on a Decade of Evangelism, it is essential for us to remember that in many respects we have been here before. .... It is vitally important for us to understand what happened in the 1970s and 1980s, so that we realize just what are the strengths and weaknesses of our current position". -- Preface.
