From the earliest days of Christianity, baptism has been a foundational act of faith for the believing community. Although churches may (and do) disagree about whether infants should or shouldn't be baptized, about whether baptism should be by "immersion" or "pouring," and about other doctrinal details-all would agree that baptism mattered to early Christians and still matters. And yet for all too many, baptism remains a ritual hardly understood, and one that seems to lack relevance for the lives we lead from day to day. Here is a book that delves into the mystery, brings understanding, and connects the "water and Word" of baptism to the tragedies and triumphs of daily life. With good humor, sound scholarship, and down-to-earth common sense, Martin Marty demonstrates how baptism can be "used" from day to day in a vibrant life of faith.
