       Author Samuel Torvend wonders, 'how is our baptismal preparation, the celebration of baptism, and ongoing baptismal and eucharistic formation shaping a people who will not only survive but flourish - perhaps in small ways - in a culture which remains skeptical of religion, religious people, and religious communities?'

These reflections on Christian baptism draw on the work of biblical and liturgical scholars, church historians, sociologists of religion, theologians, poets, cultural analysts, film-makers, and writers, the witness of the New Testament, the sermons, hymns, and architecture of early Christians, ancient and modern liturgical texts, medieval mystics, reformation leaders, and modern martyrs and reformers.

Be welcome, then, to these reflections on that one-time event which, nonetheless, welcomes the baptized into a life-time engagement with its many riches.

Samuel Torvend is Professor of the History of Christianity at Pacific Lutheran University (Tacoma, WA). He is Director of the Wild Hope Project on Vocation, and Director of the Center for Religion and Culture in the Pacific Northwest. He also serves as priest associate for adult formation at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Seattle. A graduate of Pacific Lutheran University, he holds the MDiv (Wartburg Seminary), MA (Aquinas Institute of Theology), and PhD (St. Louis University). He is the author of Daily Bread, Holy Meal: Opening the Gifts of Holy Communion (Augsburg Fortress) and Luther and the Hungry Poor: Gathered Fragments (Fortress Press).
