This Thoughtful Book Explores How the Sacraments Shape Christian Identity in Christ
Our culture today teaches us that we must look inside ourselves to discover our place and purpose in life--we can determine our own identities and express them however we want. This self-centered approach promises freedom and fulfillment, but it leads only to confusion and despair.
In The Water and the Blood, Kevin P. Emmert combats this egocentric mindset with a sustainable solution through Jesus Christ. Emmert explores the depth of Christian identity, which our triune God makes visible through the sacraments of the gospel.
This thoughtful, theologically driven book explains how God uses multisensory elements--water, bread, and wine--to communicate to his people and unite them to the life-giving body of Christ. Readers will be inspired to joyfully embrace the identity they have received in Christ as baptized and communing persons.
