Living Under Water

Baptism as a Way of Life
  • By Kevin J. Adams

Product Description

Our truest identity isn't something we create or build ourselves.

It's a gift we receive.

We live under water.

What does baptism mean? And what do we do with it? Kevin Adams--an experienced pastor and church planter who has baptized people of all ages and spiritual origins--makes the case that baptism isn't merely a one-time ceremony but something to be lived and affirmed throughout one's life. In Living under Water, Adams shares stories that illustrate how baptism shapes one's identity and enters us into an alternate narrative, one ongoing since the dawn of creation, through which we understand our truest selves with all our joy and trauma and by which we are united with a group of people unbound by race or language, continent or generation.

Foregrounding baptism in the lives of Christians means foregrounding baptism in the life of the church. Anchored in both theology and real-world experience, Adams shows how that can happen while engaging honestly with the history (and ongoing reality) of baptism's corruptions and abuses. This book is for pastors and parishioners of any Christian tradition who long for baptism to be bigger than a set of doctrinal bullet points--nothing less than the gospel story enacted with water.
