Truth We Can Touch: How Baptism and Communion Shape Our Lives

By Tim Chester, Foreword by Sinclair B. Ferguson

Many Christians often feel confused about the sacraments of baptism and Communion. What is happening when someone goes down into the water in baptism? What’s the significance of eating bread and wine together as a church on Sunday mornings? In this book, Tim Chester makes a compelling case that God has given us truth we can touch for a reason: the sacraments embody the promises, grace, and presence of Christ. He looks throughout the Bible to explain how the sacraments are intended to actually shape Christians’ lives by giving us physical bread, wine, and water we can point to as an expression of our union with Christ. The aim is to help readers treasure baptism and Communion and approach them rightly so churches can receive the full benefit God intends them to physically bring us.
