Product Description

These questions and many others have for centuries generated much debate among Christians. Today's believers hold a wide range of opinions about these ancient rites. For many people, celebrating the sacraments is just an optional church activity. For some, these rites are necessary. For others, they are indispensable to the Christian walk. So, what is the truth about these practices? What do Christians need to know about them?

This book provides the essentials. Samuel Powell has produced a concise, in-depth guide to the history, meaning, and importance of the sacraments. With special sections devoted to baptism and communion, this book explores such engaging topics as infant baptism, rebaptism, and the use of wine or juice in Communion. Insightful chapters on the theology of baptism and Communion make this work complete.

Equipped with a helpful glossary and bibliography, this book is an indispensable resource for pastors, teachers, small group leaders, and anyone wanting to know more about the sacraments and their significance to the life of faith.
