Baptism and the Body (Alastair Roberts)

May 26, 2017

Christians, even those who say much about ‘incarnational’ faith, can say surprisingly little about the way that God claims our bodies. This lecture explores the intensely bodily character of baptism as a pledge and seal that anticipates future resurrection, adoption, and the redemption of our bodies.

A lecture given by Alastair Roberts (PhD, Durham University) at English L'Abri on 26 May, 2017. Alastair writes in the areas of biblical theology and ethics, but frequently trespasses beyond these bounds. He participates in the weekly Mere Fidelity podcast, blogs at Alastair’s Adversaria, and tweets at @zugzwanged.
