Your Child's Baptism
What do you ask of God's Church for your child?
This question, taken from the Rite of Baptism, requires only the briefest of answers: Baptism—faith—eternal life. And yet, the baptism of your child is a complex event, embracing those difficult concepts we understand only by degrees: faith, life, relationship, Church.
The far-reaching and clearly formed insights in Your Child's Baptism, will help you as you prepare for the simple—and yet complex—beginning of your child's life in Christ. This book is a revised edition of the popular What Do You Ask for Your Child?
