Beautifully written by award-winning author Walter Wangerin Jr., this lyrical story introduces kids to the beauty, joy, and meaning of baptism. The perfect gift to make a child feel special – like part of the most wonderful family in the world. With a dedication page to commemorate a special occasion and a parent section to help impart their families’ unique perspective on the meaning of joining God’s family, Water Come Down is a wonderful introduction to the significance of baptism, its roots in the biblical story and its meaning for life today.

"A lilting, bright reminder of the gifts of baptism." -- H. George Anderson, Presiding Bishop Evangelical Lutheran Church in America

"A masterful synthesis of doctrine shared by Christians in all churches. Relates biblical teaching to the primal elements of creation in a way parents can teach and children can understand. My own faith was renewed as I read it. Every child of God should have it." --The Rev. Canon J. Robert Wright, General Theological Seminary of the Episcopal Church
