Continuing the Reformation

Re-Visioning Baptism in the Episcopal Church

Ruth A. Meyers

Jan/2000, 294 Pages, Hardback, 6 x 8

ISBN-13: 9780898691955



This book documents the Episcopal Church's developing focus on baptism within the context of the liturgical movement, the emerging understanding of the eucharist, prayer book revision, and the confirmation dilemma. Drawing on historical and contemporary sources, the author presents a credible case in support of her belief that a baptismal ecclesiology is emerging from these events that have enabled people to accept a radically different initiatory pattern in the church. This book exhibits clarity on the issues discussed with the support of solid scholarship and lucid writing.
