About This Item

In this book, the author traces the history of the rites of initiation and shows how Churches today are converging in their baptismal practice. Though written in an ecumenical spirit, the author neither avoids problems nor minimizes the differences that remain among various liturgical traditions. He has himself been involved directly in continuing reform of initiation rites in the Protestant Episcopal Church in the USA, usually simply known as the Episcopal Church. He has also taught at the University of Notre Dame and at Seabury Western Theological Seminary. While previously published, the essays in this book have been updated and revised by the author; they reflect his sustained, competent, and scholarly work in this specific area of liturgical studies, since 1961.

However, with the explicit approval of ACP's Manager, we may accept returns on regular book orders, within 30 days of the placement of the order, at the sole discretion of ACP, without condition or warranty of any kind.

As is customary with most bookstores, acceptable refunds apply, not to shipping and handling expenses, but only to the purchase price of the book itself. If items of any kind are returned to ACP without our prior permission, no refund whatsoever may be granted. Call or email us first: (708) 331-5485 or No COD returns will be accepted; you are responsible for all costs associated with return shipments.

A Catholic publisher in San Francisco says, "Items are not sold on approval. No returns or exchanges except for damaged or defective products. Problems must be noted within 30 days of receipt of product. Shipping costs will not be refunded."

A Catholic publisher in New Jersey says that refunds are granted for products that are damaged in transit or defective in nature. "No return will be accepted unless it has been approved previously by phone and assigned a return material authorization number."

The policy of ACP is much the same as these and other major Catholic publishers. Of course, if you have received damaged, defective, or incorrectly shipped books or other merchandise, please call or email us for instructions on returns. In all such matters, our goal is your complete satisfaction. We will always do our best for you.
