Product Description

Patristics and Reformation scholar Wright offers a guide through the "strange history" of the Christian church's interpretation---and reinterpretation---of the sacrament of infant baptism. He details the theological development of the practice from Jesus' blessing of the children through the 16th century and the Westminster Assembly to the Lima report, modern consensus, and beyond. 407 pages, softcover from Paternoster.

Publisher's Description

These important and incisive essays, spanning more than two decades of research and engagement, probe facets and episodes of infant baptisms' fortunes over twenty centuries. The story of paedo baptism is traced from its shadowy beginnings as a variant of faith-baptism, through inflated Reformation defenses as it monopolized baptismal thought and practice, to biblical and ecumenical reevaluations and hopeful contemporary rapprochements across divisive waters.
