Item Description...
Overview
As the Church continues to try to clarify the meaning of baptism, well-known liturgical scholar Kenneth Stevenson provides important insights into the historical issues with which we still wrestle. Is baptism a private or a public act? Is the symbolism of the rite still appropriate? Does the language of the baptismal service remain meaningful in a secular age? In order to answer these and other pressing questions, we must understand the thinking of those who have come before us. Stevenson does just that by looking at the writings of the 17th century Anglican divines such as Lancelot Andrewes, George Herbert, Richard Hooker, Richard Baxter, Jeremy Taylor and others, all of whom have a vital and prophetic significance for our understanding and practice of baptism today. Dr. Kenneth Stevenson is the Bishop of Portsmouth and a leading Anglican scholar. A member of the Doctrine Commission of the Church of England, he is the author of numerous books, including Covenant of Grace Renewed and The Mystery of the Eucharist in the Anglican Tradition, which is available from Morehouse Publishing, and Abba, Father.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A good read but could be more indepth  Aug 4, 2000
I enjoyed the book and found it an honest defence of infant baptism, and it is good that Bishop Stevenson got to the heart of the grace and compassion involved in Infant Baptism, what does concern me however are two things. One the point of the book, is how exactly it going to help foster ecumenism with the Free and Charismatic Churches? (An obvious and likely pointless question but I feel it needs asking) Two, some more research into modern thoughts and writings on infant baptism might be appropriate.
