Sacramental theology has traditionally not been emphasized among Baptists. In fact, most Baptist run in horror from the term "sacrament." This does not mean, however, that Baptists have not pondered long and hard over the ceremonies instituted by Jesus Christ. This book, then, is a much-needed to fills a gap in literature on the Baptists. Anthony Cross includes a series of essays by theologians and historians from both Britain and North America which explore Baptist understanding of God's work in the church and the world. Topics such as baptism, the Lord's Supper, disestablishment and are examined.
