Of Water and the Spirit

Full Product Description

According to the latest official figures, the Church of England conducts over 2,600 baptisms every week and their popularity seems to be on the rise. The figures for christenings and for adult baptism alike both show an increase of around 5% on the previous year.

The opportunities that this presents for mission are clear. As a teacher of ordinands and readers (who cannot officiate at baptisms but who are often involved in baptism preparation), Phillip Tovey surveys the Church's understanding and practice of the rite of baptism from the days of the New Testament to its meaning in today's secular society, and uniquely explores the missional dimension of the liturgy of baptism.

Of Water and the Spirit by Phillip Tovey was published by Canterbury Press Norwich in August 2015. The ISBN for Of Water and the Spirit is 9781848258037.
