"Uniform with this volume: The Parish Communion To-day: The Report of the 1962 Conference of Parish and People, edited by David M. Paton". -- p. [ii].
"The 1963 National Conference of Parish and People, held under the title 'The Mission of the People of God', was concerned to identify the mission of the Church to the world and to outline the most effective means for discharging the task. This report of the Conference consists of the papers read to its eight working parties, with brief summaries of the conclusions reached by the working parties after discussion. The speakers, all experts in their subjects covered a wide range of problems and brought new insights to bear on them; but the summaries of the conclusions are no less valuable, giving as they do the impact of the experts' views upon groups of parochial clergy and lay people" -- back cover.
