Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Dr. Mikoski presents a fascinating argument about how the sacrament of baptism has been quietly shuffled off to the sidelines of Christian practice and why it should return to the center of Christian community. By touching upon the historical role of the rite of baptism through Gregory of Nyssa and John Calvin, Mikoski hopes to reinvigorate what was once a primary practice of Christian initiation in the life of the church. Essentially, he argues that baptism is a formational practice that develops Christian identity both within the individual and within the life of the community. As such the church has the opportunity to practice baptism as part of a larger theological vision for Christian education and formation. Recommended to pastors, practical theologians and interested lay members of the church.
