"This Handbook is a fresh attempt to state the factual situation of the Christian Church in India. The steady passing of much that hitherto has been controlled by Missions has created a new situation. Areas such as Assam, Andhra, and Travancore are now so definitely the fields of the Church and its Mission that they have been treated accordingly...Out of the total of 10,000 names indexed (more than half of which are Indian) about 3,200 new names have been added and an almost equal amount deleted." - Compiler's Introduction.
