This book traces the fascinating and sometimes contentious history of the rites of Christian initiation in the 1979 prayer book, while acknowledging the reality that questions and disagreements remain. What about confirmation, the role of the bishop, and infant communion? The author concludes her comprehensive study with clear recommendations for the Church's next steps as it continues to articulate a baptismal ecclesiology.

This book documents the Episcopal Church's developing focus on baptism within the context of the liturgical movement, the emerging understanding of the eucharist, prayer book revision, and the confirmation dilemma. Drawing on historical and contemporary sources, the author presents a credible case in support of her belief that a baptismal ecclesiology is emerging from these events that have enabled people to accept a radically different initiatory pattern in the church. This book exhibits clarity on the issues discussed with the support of solid scholarship and lucid writing.
