After Baptism

John Burgess

$47.99

Paperback
In today's world in which Christianity is just one option out of many, what makes Christian identity distinctive? Burgess believes that in the sacraments and the commandments we will find amazing sources for renewing the Christian life and resisting those aspects of culture that would define identity in terms of material goods and consumption. He demonstrates how baptism, the eucharist, and the commandments offer basic orientation points for Christian existence and suggest key practices and disciplines that will give the Christian life solid form today and make Christian identity distinctive. In this book he aims to stimulate pastors, educators, and church leaders to encourage the church to practice ways of life together that help families, small groups, and individuals discover a more faithful living of the faith.
