Reasonable Christian: The Consensus Tigurinus Revisited

For those in doubt about the Reformed view of the sacraments a review of John Calvin's Consensus of Tigurinus is in order. In fact what Calvin drew up here would be very close to the view of Archbishop Thomas Cranmer as outlined in his treatise on the Lord's Supper. (See Churchman article, Cranmer's Doctrine of the Lord's Supper in its Gospel Context). To see excerpts from the google books version of Cranmer's work click on: The Lord's Supper.
