Item description for The Sacraments in Protestant Practice and Faith by James F. White...

We tend to forget the innovations the Reformers made in the way congregations worshiped. White, however, hasn't, and canvasses all the major transformations during the last 500 years, citing both leading thinkers and the liturgical texts themselves, in this sweeping, easy-to-follow overview.

Publishers Description
The sacraments were a major factor in the Reformation of the sixteenth century. Ever since, they have been an important part of Protestant church life. Major changes have occurred in our time as most traditions have revised their sacramental rites and experienced many changes in sacramental practices. This book traces the most significant practices in the past five centuries, explains how they often led to controversies, and examines the faith that was expressed and experienced in the sacraments. James F. White attempts to depict the whole sweep of Protestant sacramental life, so that an overall picture is possible. And he outlines the possibilities for future developments.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Sacraments in Protestant Practice and Faith?

broad summary  Dec 18, 2007
This seems to be the only book out there that broadly summarizes the range of Protestant thought on the sacraments. I thought the issue-by-issue structure was very helpful. It's true that this book is not as comprehensive as it could be, I don't believe that is the goal of the book.

This book is meant to be an introduction to protestant sacramental thought and it more that fulfills that expectation. As a broad evangelical protestant, I was able to read this book and find my own sacramental belief. For that reason, I recommend this book.
Not impressed  Jun 21, 2005
The information in this book is a bit on the light side. In dealing with Luther's position on the Roman Catholic Church withholding the cup from the laity the author presents Luther as being doggedly against this and that it was a terrible thing. That is not an accurate view of Luther on this subject. Much more could have been included in this book. I do not recommend this book.
