Baptism is the entry into Christian life. In the early Church it was often administered to adults, who were expected to follow a course of instruction before and after baptism. In this book two bishops, Cyril of Jerusalem and Augustine of Hippo use the rites of baptism to explain the beliefs and way of life of Christians. Tertullian, a layman and lawyer, deals with the controversies that surrounded baptism in his day.
