A Guide to the Sacraments, by John Macquarrie

John Macquarrie's small book on the sacraments offers everything those who know his work have come to expect. Despite some puzzling exceptions (Luther is not indexed, for example), it exhibits the breadth of the Anglican "middle way." Macquarrie primarily relies on patristic, orthodox Roman Catholic and Anglican doctrinal traditions as they inform today's official ecumenical discussions, rather than on the evangelical traditions of the Reformation. He seems mainly to be addressing the conversation between Canterbury and Rome, not the wider ecumenical discussions that now also include the Pentecostals.
