Understanding Four Views on Baptism
by 5 authors John H. Armstrong, Richard L. Pratt Jr., Robert Kolb, John D. Castelein, Tom J. Nettles
What is the significance of water baptism? Who should be baptized? Is infant baptism scriptural? Which is the proper baptismal mode: sprinkling, pouring, or immersion? Should people be rebaptized if they join a church that teaches a different form of baptism? Should baptism be required for church membership? These and other questions are explored in this thought-provoking book.
