A primer or refresher on the sacrament of Baptism for new

parents, new members, and godparents.

This book is about preparing for Christian baptism in the Episcopal Church. While we may hear people say, “I was baptized a Methodist,” or “I was baptized Catholic, or “I was baptized Episcopalian,” people are not baptized into a denomination; they are baptized into the Christian faith. While various Christian denominations differ both their theology of baptism as it is understood and practiced in the Episcopal Church following the rite found in the Book of Common Prayer 1979.

“This short book is full of helpful information, solid history, sound theology, and thoughtful reflection. It is the perfect book to give to adults or to parents of young children seeking baptism through the Episcopal Church. I am happy that I will be able to offer this book to my students for their future use when guiding baptismal candidates. A truly welcome resource.”—The Reverend Dr. Nathan Jennings, associate professor of liturgics and Anglican studies, Seminary of the Southwest
