Dr. Pinson explores the historic tradition of feet washing and its influence on the 21st century church. The author also presents a discussion of the historical definition of the term ordinance and why some throughout church history have defined feet washing as an ordinance to be practiced. At the end of each chapter are hymns that speak to the subject of feet washing. An appendix includes a discussion by Augustine on John 13. Also included are study questions to be used in a church or classroom setting.
