Book: Baptism: A Celebration of God's Presence!

Baptism: a Celebration of God's Presence is a twenty-sheet resource packet intended to highlight a child's baptism. It contains statements on the meaning and importance of baptism and guides for specific practices that will make the sacrament more celebrative. The guides include suggestions for banner making and for conducting the baptismal service.

The materials are very helpful. They are biblically sound and appropriately highlight the importance of baptism for the Christian life. They are flexible and thus readily adaptable to various church and family situations. The overall format is attractive, although the variety of type and page formats is distracting, and the copy-editing not as careful as it ought to be. Recommended!
