A Classic Theological Quandary: Baptism

Question: what theological issue has been debated amongst Christians for millennia without a clear winner? Of course, there are many. But one in particular has caused such heated disagreement throughout Church history that people have died for their convictions (and not always due to drowning): baptism.

Deep Dive on Baptism

Plenty has been written on both sides of the debate. If you want to dive deep into the rich theological dialogue of the past century, you should to consider investing in the 42-volume Classic Studies in Baptism collection. This immense array of resources dates from an earlier period of theological debate, but is no less useful for that, especially considering your ability to mine these treasures using the powerful tools within Logos 8.

In fact, some of the most important works on baptism were written in the latter half of the 19th century, discussing all the topics we still argue over today. Should we use immersion, sprinkling, pouring, or dipping? Who qualifies? Babies, children, adults only, church members only, deathbed ceremonies? What is the significance, the symbolism, the function, the precedence, the history of interpretation? Find it all here in this collection, fully tagged and searchable through the powerful tools in Logos Bible Software.

Bidding is currently open on the Baptism collection, which means you propose the price you are willing to pay. But you have to do it soon before the price is set during pre-pub.

(And really, if for no other reason, you should get these resources to discuss the header picture; you can’t dismiss sprinkling just because of men riding fish.) Click on the image below to see the full list of resources:
