This "is a practical guide for families and parish ministers who are involved in the preparation of infants and young children in the Anglican Church. This resource offers simple explanations of the sacrament, the baptismal liturgy, and its place in the whole process of Christian initiation. Guide-lines for four small meetings following the four stages of the liturgical rite are included. Though designed for family preparation for infant baptism, the lay-out of 'Child of God, Blessed in the Spirit' makes it a useful resource for teachers and leaders of Adult Catechumenate or renewal groups". -- back cover.
