`The Sacraments: A Practical Guide' seeks to foster a recovery of worship in both Word and Sacrament among Protestant Christians, especially those in Asia. Classical Protestant understandings are seen as the basis of a contemporary liturgical piety centered on the sacraments. This book aims to encourage Protestants to rediscover their traditional sacramental theologies and practices in order that they might recover their distinctive identities and revitalize their witness in the world. To know and understand a church's sacramental faith and practice is to find the heart of its theology and faith.

Practical in nature and pastoral in its outlook, this handbook for sacramental practice focuses on baptism and the Lord's Supper with much attention given to practical matters such as the physical requirements and pastoral issues surrounding the two sacraments. This book is intended for pastors and other church leaders who want to renew the worship life of their churches by rediscovering the sacraments, particularly the sacramental theologies and practices of their own ecclesial traditions.
