This book studies the way the central act of Christian worship (variously known as the Eucharist, the Lord's Supper, the Holy Communion, and the Mass) has been treated in the thought and practice of the Evangelical tradition in the Church of England. Evangelicals are not associated with an emphasis on the Eucharist, and Dr. Cocksworth's study is important and potentially very influential because it demonstrates that--at its times of strength--the Evangelical tradition has held the Eucharist in the highest regard.

Editorial Reviews

"In this treatment of the theology and practice of the eucharist in the evangelical wing of Anglicanism, Cocksworth has not only given us an excellent and understandable historical survey of the subject but also has sketched a solid outline of evangelical eucharistic theology for the present period. For anyone interested in the history of the eucharist, Anglican theology, or the questions confronting Evangelicals today, this study would serve both as a reliable introduction and a stimulating catalyst for discerning further areas of research. For the ecumenist seeking something new in a field that seems characterized by continual déjà vu, this volume will certainly offer inspiration." James L. Empereur, Journal of Ecumenical Studies
