Overview

The Promise of Baptism: An Introduction to Baptism in Scripture and the Reformed Tradition thoughtfully outlines the Reformed perspective on the sacrament of Baptism. James Brownson explains the scriptural basis, the theological underpinnings, and the practical implications of this particular element of the faith. Organized into 30 focused chapters—each of which centers on a key question—and enhanced by thoughtful discussion questions, The Promise of Baptism will be an important resource for pastors, students, and laypersons seeking to better understand this sacrament that lies at the heart of the church’s life.

Praise for the Print Edition

I highly recommend the Brownson book for use in local churches by pastors, church boards, and adult education teachers.

Theology Today

James Brownson has written a book that is theologically solid and accessible to a broad church audience. Demonstrating a thorough familiarity with the Scriptures and the Reformed tradition, he tackles the knotty questions that arise in many Protestant congregations today: Is baptism necessary for salvation? Who was eligible for baptism in the early church? Why do different denominations view baptism in different ways? If you have ever wondered whether or why babies should be baptized, Brownson will help you rediscover the power of God’s covenant promises.

—John Burgess, James Henry Snowden Professor of Systematic Theology, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary
