"The Missionary Council's Unified Statement for 1944 differs in several respects from its predecessors in the series. Previous issues were intended to give the Church at home a conspectus of the current needs, opportunities and achievements of the Church in all parts of the world, as reported in the year's correspondence with the Bishops of the overseas dioceses. .... 'Man-power in the Twentieth-Century Church', as its name implies, concentrates on the one subject of reinforcements. It is primarily addressed to those not yet in close contact with the work of the Church overseas. Conditions of publication in war-time have made it impossible for the Missionary Council to assume its usual collective responsibility for the text. .... Canon Campbell, the Secretary of the Council, was asked to do this, and I am sure that all who read 'Man-power in the Twentieth-Century Church' will be grateful to him for the way in which he has dealt with the subject. He has given us a Report which is as interesting as it is valuable". -- Foreword.
