Of Water and the Spirit: A Liturgical Study of Baptism

Schmemann, Alexander, Of Water and the Spirit: A Liturgical Study of Baptism. SVS Press.

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 He penetrates the Church's rubrics and rituals often dismissed as out-of-date or merely quaint to reveal their inner content: a message of man's entrance into new life, into the Church and into the Kingdom.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.
