OF WATER AND THE SPIRIT: A LITURGICAL STUDY OF BAPTISM

Author: ALEXANDER SCHMEMANN #: 10571

In this study of the Orthodox understanding of Christian initiation, the rites of baptism and chrismation, Fr. Schmemann invites us to “rediscover” baptism. He penetrates the Church`s rubrics and rituals, often dismissed as out-of-date or merely quaint — to reveal their inner content: a message of man`s entrance into new life, into the Church and into the Kingdom. The result is a powerful statement of the meaning baptism should hold in our lives.
