Chris McDonnell in the Catholic Times writes about Eating together, becoming one, a recently published book by Professor Tom O'Loughlin. Tom currently holds the chair of Historical Theology in the University of Nottingham and has recently retired as president of the Catholic Theological Association. In this book he addresses the complex issue of intercommunion amongst Christian churches.
