Review: Don’t even recall when you last renewed your baptismal promise? Esther de Waal suspects many believers become ho-hum about the life-changing mission we accepted at Baptism. She offers “a deep look at the deep past” to reignite our commitment to the risen Christ, taking us into the dramatic Baptism ritual embraced by the early Christians. Baptism for them was above all “urgent,” a “turning toward this promise of life and freedom.”

Seeking Life also delves deep into the Rule of St. Benedict, a monastic pioneer who, says de Waal, sought “people who are fully alive, who live life to the full.” —
