The question of what happens to whom and why within the Communion service has been at the heart of much theological debate down the centuries. This surprisingly comprehensive study (28 pages) looks at the key issues as to what consecration does, who can make it happen and what they need to say and do. This is essential reading for anyone concerned with the nature of Communion in the church.
