The treatment of the theme is in nine main sections: 1. The scope of the sacrament, 2. The substance of the sacrament, 3. Early practice, 4. The development of Confirmation as a separate rite, 5. Reformed practice, 6. Development since the Reformation, 7. Practical considerations (place in the service, who should be present in the baptism of an infant, the baptism itself, pastoral considerations), 8. Proof of baptism, 9. Looking to the future.
