Companion volume to: Modern Eucharistic Agreement. London: SPCK, 1973.
"The publication of 'Modern Eucharistic Agreement' brought home to many the surprising convergence which had been achieved by disparate groups on the nature and significance of the eucharist. With the present publication there will be a growth in the optimism that can be detected among those charged with achieving doctrinal consensus between churches apparently separated by opposing views on the nature of the ministry. .... In the following pages the results of four ecumenical dialogues are set forth. It is for the critic to decide on their relative worth, but the ordinary reader is greatly helped by the overall analysis provided by the [Rt. Rev. Henry R. McAdoo] Bishop of Ossory in his introductory essay". -- Preface.
