Product Description

Our common belonging to Christ through baptism creates a bond that transcends the historic and theological differences among the churches; and the mutual recognition of baptism has emerged as a cornerstone of the modern ecumenical movement. Yet significant differences-some threatening the search for the unity of the Church-remain.
This book explores the significance of baptism for the churches, and the ecumenical movement, today. Descriptive articles explain the understanding and practice of baptism within a wide range of Christian churches and confessions; these are complemented by baptismal liturgies from many churches, examples of mutual recognition agreements, and reflections on topics such as the role of baptism in increasingly secularized societies. The volume is enhanced by survey articles by prominent liturgists, reviewing the current opportunities-and challenges-facing the churches in the area of baptism.

Endorsements

"This is a wonderful book for any person interested in understanding where the Churches and the global society are today on baptism. At the same time, it challenges our mind presenting the agreements and distance among the Churches in this crucial issue of our faith. I think it is the most important contribution of the last decade for those who work in a pastoral level and an unavoidable tool for research and teaching."
-Dr. Pablo R. AndiƱach, Instituto Universitario ISEDET, Buenos Aires, Argentina
