Overview

The sacraments of baptism and the Lord’s Supper have played an important role in the church since its earliest days. There has also been much disagreement within the church about how to understand them. 

Pastors Thabiti Anyabwile and J. Ligon Duncan have teamed up to outline the Bible’s basic teaching about baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Speaking from different traditions, they bring perspective to the discussion while both observing that baptism and the Lord’s Supper should be fundamentally understood as pointing to something greater. This new booklet from the Gospel Coalition will bring clarity for those wanting to understand the importance of baptism and the Lord’s Supper. 

The authors offer a thoughtful explanation for point 12 of the Gospel Coalition’s Confessional Statement. The coalition is an evangelical renewal movement dedicated to a Scripture-based reformation of ministry practices.

This short booklet presents an objective explanation of the diverse understanding of Christian baptism - those who believe baptism is to be extended only to believing Christians and those who believe it should be extended to those who believe and their children. It also presents the three major understandings of the Eucharist (The Lord's Supper or Communion) - those who believe our participation is merely a memorial recollection of the historic event of Jesus' crucifixion, those who believe in a spiritual presence of Jesus with us, and those who believe the bread and wine actually become the physical body and blood of Jesus to those that are baptized. Scripture is presented on all perspectives that can be clearly supported by Scripture. This edition is edited by two contemporary scholars and although it is short, it is well worth reading.
