Baptism and the Lord's Supper [Gospel Coalition Booklets]
Anyabwile, Thabiti; Duncan, J Ligon, III
In this brief overview two pastors outline central teachings concerning baptism and the Lord's Supper.
The sacraments of baptism and the Lord's Supper have played an important role in the church since its earliest days. There has also been much disagreement within the church about how to understand them.
Pastors Thabiti Anyabwile and J. Ligon Duncan have teamed up to outline the Bible's basic teaching about baptism and the Lord's Supper. Speaking from different traditions, they bring perspective to the discussion while both observing that baptism and the Lord's Supper should be fundamentally understood as pointing to something greater. This new booklet from the Gospel Coalition will bring clarity for those wanting to understand the importance of baptism and the Lord's Supper.
The authors offer a thoughtful explanation for point 12 of the Gospel Coalition's Confessional Statement. The coalition is an evangelical renewal movement dedicated to a Scripture-based reformation of ministry practices.
