This landmark volume from an influential group of Anglican theologians explores baptism as the foundation for living out all forms of Christian vocation - in confirmation, marriage, ordination, and religious life. It offers theological and pastoral perspectives on the centrality and significance of baptism for a Church that has perhaps lost a sense of the radical commitment that baptism calls for.


It explores the meaning of vows today as promise, covenant, oath, Rule and explores the difference between religious and secular vows. It considers the nature of the vows under which all Christians live, and the particular vows such as marriage and ordination embraced by some.


Together, these perceptive reflections offer a theological and pastoral resource for activating every Christian's the sense of call and response whatever their mode of life.
