Reviews

"Anna Ostenso Moore's new book, Today is a Baptism Day, gently and yet passionately reminds us that we are all invited to be in relationship with God, and that baptism is a powerful embrace of God's never-ending love. Matching the lively spirit of her words are Peter Krueger's compelling illustrations, sparking joy on the part of the reader. This is a book to give, to treasure, and to have in the library of all faith communities. Well done!"
--The Rev. Lindsay Freeman, interim rector at St. Nicholas Church in Richfield, Minnesota "This delightfully illustrated book beautifully unfolds the theology of baptism within an expansive vision of who we are as members of the Body of Christ."
--The Rev. Canon Anne E. Kitch, Canon to the Ordinary, Diocese of Bethlehem"Ostenso Moore's story and Krueger's artwork combine to create a wonder-filled resource for families bringing their children to be baptized."
--The Rev. Cheryl V. Minor, Ph.D., Director of the Center for the Theology of Childhood, The Godly Play Foundation"With its colorful and inclusive illustrations, and poignant and simple text, The Reverend Anna Ostenso Moore's Today is Baptism Day is a must have resource for anyone preparing for baptism."
--The Rt. Rev. Brian N. Prior, Bishop, Episcopal Church in Minnesota"Today is a Baptism Day is beautiful at every level: artistically, theologically, scripturally, and communally. The stunning artistry perfectly weaves depictions of a variety of families who might bring their infant to the baptismal font; the text is poetically straightforward, with layers of meaning to be uncovered and rejoiced in over the years of celebrating a child's baptism. An instant keepsake!"
--The Rev. Emmy Kegler, pastor, Grace Lutheran Church in Northeast Minneapolis
