"I had the bad luck to finish the original draft of this pamphlet the very day the Open Letter to the Archbishops from the Thirty-Two Theologians appeared [November 1961]" (p. 1). .... "I therefore find the recent editorial suggestion of 'The Church Times' of 'an invitation to all baptised and communicant Christians of good standing in their own Churches to come, when they so desire, to receive the Holy Communion in their parish Church' rather shocking. I am not often more rigorist than 'The Church Times'. But I believe this proposal reveals a much lower doctrine of the Church than that of the Open Letter. It also discloses in a particularly instructive way the Anglican tendency to assume that as long as there is an episcopally ordained celebrant no other theological issue matters very much" (p. 7). .... "In fact one must, I think, say that if, and at the point at which intercommunion is ever justified short of union, reciprocal intercommunion is also justified. If we are regarding ourselves and each other as self-sufficient coexistent denominations, content to continue living and working side by side, then intercommunion merely deepens our guilt. But if we are seeking to live by the same unity which we know we do not possess but which we believe Christ has the power to make of us, then our 'locus standi' is utterly different. Intercommunion is then the great sacrament of justification by faith, the pledge of our new being in Christ, and all that is required for it is the trust that grace does indeed meet us through each of our sacraments however defective" (p. 11-12).

[Permission from Anglican Church of Canada Bishops for Members of Other Christian Churches to Receive Holy Communion in the Anglican Church]

Text
Bishops of the Anglican Church of Canada have agreed to permit members of other Christian Churches to receive Holy Communion in the Anglican Church.
The House of Bishops meeting this week in Toronto has broadened the guidelines laid down by Bishops following action at General Synod in Sudbury in 1969 which requested the diocesan bishops to permit Anglicans and members of other Christian Churches to share in Eucharistic practice with the full knowledge and consent of the proper authorities.
This permission to communicate will not, by itself, constitute membership in the Anglican Church, regulations for which are established by the various dioceses.
Announcing these revised guidelines Archbishop E.W. Scott, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada and Chairman of the House of Bishops, stated that "the House of Bishops agrees that communicants of other Christian Churches who have been baptised with water in the Name of the Holy Trinity are welcome, if they so desire, to receive Holy Communion in Anglican Churches." The bishops also agreed that members of the Anglican Church may, in accordance with their conscience, receive Holy Communion in non-Anglican Churches where they are welcomed.
Similar action was taken recently by the Church of England

THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND
Canon B. 15 A
Of the Admission to Holy Communion
1. There shall be admitted to the Holy Communion:
(a) Members of the Church of England who have been confirmed in accordance with the rites of that Church or are ready and desirous to be so confirmed or who have been otherwise episcopally confirmed with unction or with the laying on of hands, except as provided by the next following Canon:
(b) Baptized persons who are communicant members of other Churches which subscribe to the doctrine of the Holy Trinity, and who are in good standing in their own Church;

(d) Any baptized person in immediate danger of death.

"[By] Colin Buchanan".
Includes bibliographical references and index.
"This is a fairly personal book. It records 40 years of cut and thrust in the Church of England's General Synod and kindred bodies, as I have seen it, experienced it, and on occasion handed it out myself. Much is told from my personal standpoint, and the selection of themes derives from my own involvement. It is not autobiography, but an attempt (as in my other writings) at accurate journalism. .... Oh yes, and remember I am not telling it the way it was. No one on earth can do that. I am telling it the way I have found it". -- Intro.
Contents: Acknowledgements -- Preliminary -- Abbreviations -- Introduction -- The Synod -- Open communion -- The Liturgical Commission and liturgy in Synod -- Baptism and Confirmation -- Children in communion -- Eucharistic prayers -- Six other liturgical issues -- Anglicans and Methodists -- Roman Catholic relationships -- Multi-ethnic Anglicanism -- Colleges and courses -- The ordination of women -- Lay presidency -- The charismatic movement -- Homosexual issues and 'Issues in Human Sexuality' -- Church and State -- Political structures and the Single Transferable Vote -- The appointment of diocesan bishops -- The Anglican Communion -- Appendix A: A few personalities -- Appendix B: Biographical timeline and index to sessions of General Synod -- Appendix C: Bibliography of Colin Buchanan's writings as they relate to the chapters of this book -- Notes -- Index.
Author became "Principal of St. John's College, Nottingham [in 1979]. He founded the Grove Booklet Series in 1971, is well known for his work on liturgy and has published extensively on this and many other subjects. He was Bishop of Woolwich from 1996 until his retirement in 2004". -- inside front dust jacket blurb.
