Publisher's Description

As the Church of England alone conducts more than 2500 baptisms each week and the number of adult candidates rises steadily, this robust and original study explores baptism as an expression of the church's mission.

Phillip Tovey explores baptism and confirmation in the Christian tradition through the lens of a biblical theology of baptism. Beginning with the practices and liturgies of the New Testament church, he traces their development through the early Christian centuries, the Middle Ages, the Reformation and its aftermath, in the context of world mission and in the modern secular age.

Author Bio

Phillip Tovey is Director of Training and Warden of Readers in the Diocese of Oxford and an Associate Member of the Faculty of Theology and Religion at the University of Oxford. He lectures in liturgy at Ripon College Cuddesdon.

Editorial Reviews

'In nine short chapters, Phillip Tovey gives a comprehensive overview of the development of the baptismal liturgy from the New Testament to the suite of services in Common Worship.'
