    1 thought on “Enter the Water, Come to the Table: Baptism and Lord's Supper in the Bible's Story of New Creation”

    1. An excellent, concise look at what God is actually doing in baptism and the Lord's Supper, and how we can deepen our understanding of these sacraments (yeah, I used the 'S' word). The Restoration Movement has always emphasized these practices, and this book both reminds us why they're important for Christian identity, and calls us to renew our practice in even deeper ways.

    2. It was helpful at challenging my perspective on baptism. I also really appreciate his analysis of the Lord’s Supper as a celebration of the new creation in the living Christ as opposed to a mourning of the crucified Christ. I recommend this book because I think it will challenge anyone to reconsider their understandings of baptism and communion no matter what denomination they come from.

    3. John Mark Hicks has been a brother, mentor, and one-time travel companion of mine since my time at Lipscomb University. Few academics impress me as much as John Mark in their ability to retain so much information, recollect it without aid, and express it in a way that is fitting for any given audience. (In the loving words of a fellow professor, “We hate him because we all know he can teach all of our classes and probably do it better.”) His website, johnmarkhicks, hosts a wealth of informat [...]

    4. I enjoyed reading this book. I particularly appreciated the author's treatment of the Lord's supper. His points left me with a lot of food for thought. It is always good to look at the things we do routinely and see them in a new light. Doing so takes away the routine attitude toward what is sacred and central to our faith. As always John Mark Hicks causes his readers to think, and rethink what it is they do and why. I recommend it as a thought provoking study of baptism and the Lord's supper.

    5. This book goes a long way in restoring the meaning and beauty of baptism, which in my tradition, has become something one HAS to do to be SAVED. It also goes a long way in expanding our idea of the Lord's Supper/Communion/Eucharist, which we have turned into a rote ritual. The best part of this book is chapters 6 and 7, A Renewed for Practice of Baptism and the Lord's Supper. It will be nice to see congregations experiment with some of these ideas!

    6. Hicks does a great job of connecting dots in the Bible, identifying and explaining the meaning of baptism and communion within the context of the entire Biblical narrative. Quite good.
