As the Church continues to try to clarify the meaning of baptism, well-known liturgical scholar Kenneth Stevenson provides important insights into the historical issues with which we still wrestle. Is baptism a private or a public act? Is the symbolism of the rite still appropriate? Does the language of the baptismal service remain meaningful in a secular age? In order to answer these and other pressing questions, we must understand the thinking of those who have come before us. Stevenson does just that by looking at the writings of the 17th century Anglican divines such as Lancelot Andrewes, George Herbert, Richard Hooker, Richard Baxter, Jeremy Taylor and others, all of whom have a vital and prophetic significance for our understanding and practice of baptism today. Dr. Kenneth Stevenson is the Bishop of Portsmouth and a leading Anglican scholar. A member of the Doctrine Commission of the Church of England, he is the author of numerous books, including Covenant of Grace Renewed and The Mystery of the Eucharist in the Anglican Tradition, which is available from Morehouse Publishing, and Abba, Father.
