Much of the current theology of Baptism focuses on the image of Baptism as dying and rising, as found in Romans, chapter 6. But, other images such as rebirth and adoption also resound in scripture and tradition. As the author proposes, recovering these traditions may suggest other appropriate feasts for the celebration of Baptism, and will deepen the appreciation and understanding of the sacrament itself.
The Forum Essay series is a collaborative effort between LTP and The North American Forum on the Catechumenate. The purpose is to provide an opportunity for scholars to explore issues emerging from the implementation of the order of Christian initiation. They are excellent resources for the ongoing education of initiation teams and all parish ministers.
