Sacraments & Discipleship: Understanding Baptism and the Lord's Supper in a United Methodist Context
Now in it's second printing, Sacraments & Discipleship is an accessible way to learn about the meaning of the sacraments in a nonsectarian yet thoroughly United Methodist way. Drawing on scripture, Christian tradition and personal pastoral experience, Stamm discusses baptism and Holy Communion as works that should elicit a life of responsible discipleship. ""We will emphasize the work of God's grace, yet we will insist that there is a human side of the covenant,"" he writes, ""our work of receiving grace."" A free 6-session online study guide is available here. Sacraments & Discipleship is an excellent reference source and tool for teaching a class on the sacraments.
