A 'The drastic rupture of the traditional Anglican ministerial discipline in the election and consecration of the present Episcopal bishop of New Hampshire has tended to eclipse the equally drastic rupture of Anglican tradition championed by the diocese of Sydney, namely to allow lay presidency at the eucharist. Nicholas Taylor's thorough discussion of the questions and implications of lay presidency is a timely contribution to this vexed debate.' - Bryan D. Spinks, Yale Divinity School and Yale Institute of Sacred Music, New Haven, CT, USAv
"Nicholas Taylor is to be congratulated on producing a major and extremely valuable publicationA ... The Church will be greatly in the author's debt for the thorough, clear and scholarly treatment of the subject. He has provided a much needed theological platform upon which a consensus might be sought on the matter of lay presidency at the eucharist and the catholic and reformed character of the Church more fully manifest." - Stephen Pickard, Assistant Bishop, Diocese of Adelaide, Australia
