These reflections on Christian baptism draw on the work of biblical and liturgical scholars, church historians, sociologists of religion, theologians, poets, cultural analysts, film-makers, and writers, the witness of the New Testament, the sermons, hymns, and architecture of early Christians, ancient and modern liturgical texts, medieval mystics, reformation leaders, and modern martyrs and reformers.
Be welcome, then, to these reflections on that one-time event which, nonetheless, welcomes the baptized into a life-time engagement with its many riches.
