The Eucharist

The discussion on the Eucharist by the Faith and Order Commission of the World Council of Churches Lausanne 1927 - Lima 1982


Polycarp Chuma Ibebuike

To come to grips with the present ecumenical position on the Eucharist, it is reasonable to draw up the line of action by WCC and especially the Faith and Order Commission on its discussion on the eucharist at multilateral level. This work traces the origin and development of the fifty-five years discussion, pointing out the controversial issues that beset the eucharist, analyzes the solutions proffered and evaluates the response of some major Christian Churches.
Contents: Systematic presentation of different ecumenical issues on the eucharist as discussed at bilateral and multilateral levels. Biblical understanding of Anamnesis and Epiclesis assisting to overcome the issues of disagreement, were incorporated.
