An eye opening, but generally mainline Methodist view of the purpose and practice related to the sacriments of baptism and communion. Stamm shows that Methodism at its roots was meant to conduct baptism with the liberal application of water, and was intended to strive towards continuous communion, as opposed to the monthly (or more seldom) observation typical of Methodism in the US today.

This is a clear and well presented, orthodox education in these basic components of Christian practice, giving the reader an understanding of these sacriments that allows for an ecumenical view of Christianity. ( )
