W 226 Accessible Baptisms: A Commentary on the Alternative Common Worship Texts (2016)


As with other Common Worship texts, the Baptism service has been criticised for being over wordy and easily misunderstood by those not inducted into some complex theological ideas. 

This study looks at the Additional Baptism texts now available, and explores whether they achieve their aim of making the language accessible without sacrificing key theological concepts. It is essential reading for anyone planning to use—or to critique—these additional resources.
