Christians of different denominations often have different views about the rite of baptism. Should infants be baptized, or is baptism for believers only? What exactly does baptism mean? What is the biblical mode of baptism: immersion, sprinkling, pouring, or dipping? Or do several methods find warrant in Scripture? The Eerdmans Baptism Collection provides two volumes addressing these often debated questions. Read about the scriptural basis for baptism from a Reformed perspective, study the practice of baptism in the New Testament, and learn about the meaning of this element of the Christian faith.
In the Logos editions, these valuable volumes are enhanced by amazing functionality. Scripture and ancient-text citations link directly to English translations and original-language texts, and important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library.
