"The perfect guidebook for curious parents, enthusiastic newcomers, and confused cradle Catholics. Frankly, this is the best book on baptism I've ever read." —James Martin, S.J. author of the New York Times Bestseller, The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything



Baptism is the beginning of one's life in the community of the church, and the "gateway" to the rest of the sacraments.
• Isn't it better to get baptized when you're older, and can understand what you're doing?
• Does my baby have to be baptized immediately?
• Will my child go to hell, limbo or purgatory if—God forbid—he or she dies before baptism?
• Why are so many baptisms done during the Mass these days?
• What's the role of the godparents? Do they have to be Catholics? Christians? Believers?
These are questions from good Catholics that deserve good answers. If people remain confused about baptism, they will be confused about the sacramental life of the church, and, by extension, their faith.

"Thomas Scirghi has written a fine book on baptism for the 21st century church. Rooted deeply in Scripture, the authoritative teaching of the Catholic Church, and the living tradition of sacramental practice, Scirghi's book is laced with literary, cultural, and everyday examples that allow readers to grasp (or grasp anew) the continuing significance of baptism in the life of the Church and in their own lives." –Timothy Brunk, Assistant Professor of Theology, Villanova University

Thomas Scirghi S.J. is associate professor of systematic theology at Fordham University in New York. He's a practical theologian writing for an audience of non-theologians who desire a deeper understanding of the faith.
