40 Questions About Baptism And The Lords Supper

$23.99

40 Questions About Baptism and the Lords Supper, appropriate for the student and thoughtful layperson, answers forty of the most common and most difficult questions about the two Protestant ordinances. There is significant diversity of views on these subjects and the skilled, even-handed biblical analysis sheds lights on the many theological and pastoral considerations regarding baptism and communion. Baptism and the Lords Supper are practiced by almost all Christian churches, but they disagree on the meaning, proper participants, even the proper names for these observances. This book includes the major theological issues (such as infant baptism, open and closed communion, and the nature of Gods activity in these celebrations), the views held by different denominations (from Roman Catholic to Lutheran, Reformed, Baptist, and others), and a number of practical issues (such as the proper age at which to baptize a child, the frequency with which the Lords Supper should be observed, and whether these two practices should be observed only in churches). This volume will be helpful to pastors, worship leaders, college and seminary students, and of interest to all Christians who want to grow in their understanding of these two basic Christian acts of worship. Each chapter is succinct and readable, with footnotes indicating additional sources for those who wish to go further.|40 Questions About Baptism and the Lords Supper, appropriate for the student and thoughtful layperson, answers forty of the most common and most difficult questions about the two Protestant ordinances.
