Author Bio

Gordon Mikoski is assistant professor of Christian education at Princeton Theological Seminary. He is also Reviews Editor for Theology Today and the President-elect of the Association of Practical Theology.

Publisher Description

Baptizing and teaching in the Triune Name today should aim to produce deeply committed Christians who have a strong allegiance to creative engagement with non-Christian individuals and communities for the common good. But is this the case? Gordon Mikoski here examines how the sacrament of baptism, the doctrine of the Trinity, and the practice of Christian education constitute a dynamic nexus that has the potential to foster congregations marked by the formation of both deep Christian identity and creative engagement in public arenas.

Baptism and Christian Identity begins with a careful analysis of the thought of Gregory of Nyssa and John Calvin, finding in their words the necessity of holding baptism, Trinity, and ecclesial pedagogy together. Mikoski then outlines how this nexus can function for contemporary Christian communities as they carry out the work of educational ministry. Next, he examines the contemporary Christian context and its interaction with faith formation. The book concludes with a suggestive treatment of implications of the baptism-Trinity-pedagogy nexus for the educational ministry of a congregation.
