The acclaimed guide for lay Christians who wish to live their faith fully and joyfully, and in ways which can truly evangelise. What difference does it make in our everyday lives if we are baptised Christians? Clare Watkins rediscovers the Christian tradition of `living baptism' in this vibrant, challenging and accessible look at the faith of everyday Christians. In today's "post-Christendom" society baptism can appear, even to Christians, as something of an empty commonplace. To be sure, we baptise, we christen; but all too often the truly profound nature of what is being done is lost to us. And this at a time when, perhaps more than ever, we need thoroughly lively and substantial thought about what it means to be an "ordinary" Christian - simply a baptised person. There is, none the less, in Scripture, the theological tradition, and the lived wisdom of Christian people, a rich, enlivening something to be said about baptism - a something which can contribute to the transformation of Christian living (and so to the transformation of our world) that is, surely, presently needed. This book is an attempt to speak that something - and to speak it into the ordinary, day to day living of baptised people, so that the extraordinariness of that living might become clearer.
