Is believer’s baptism the clear teaching of the New Testament Scriptures? What are the historical and theological challenges to believer’s baptism? What are the practical applications for believer’s baptism today? This volume addresses these compelling questions. Indeed, Believer’s Baptism: The Covenant Sign of the New Age in Christ begins with the belief that believer’s baptism (as opposed to infant baptism or other faith proclaiming methods) is the clear teaching of the New Testament. Along the way, the argument is supported by written contributions from Andreas Köstenberger, Robert Stein, Thomas Schreiner, Stephen Wellum, Steve McKinion, Jonathan Rainbow, Shawn Wright, and Mark Dever.

Praise for the Print Edition

Believer’s Baptism is destined to be a classic concerning the doctrine of baptism. It is scholarly and practical, biblical and pastoral. Without demeaning those with whom they disagree, the contributors to this volume make the case for believer’s baptism by immersion as biblical baptism. Any future discussion of this doctrine will have to take this work into consideration.

—Daniel L. Akin, President, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

    Would like to have heard something about the "thrice baptizers." Great read, though.

    Schreiner and Wright are to be commended for setting forth a contemporary restatement of the biblical doctrine of baptism. Their work is based upon a high view of Scripture that takes into consideration the full scope of God’s revelation and church history. In a day in which many believers either downplay the importance of baptism, refuse to be baptized, call it a minor issue, or argue over the proper mode of baptism, this book is a welcomed voice. It will be a helpful resource to anyone, especially church leaders, who wish to recover or maintain a proper view of the role of baptism in the Christian life and in the church. "Believer’s Baptism" will also serve as a good tool for those who wish to defend the doctrine of believer’s baptism by immersion. It is helpful to have such a thoughtful, biblical, and scholarly work to which to refer when addressing this debate with others. While the authors reject the practice of paedobaptism, they do so only after carefully and accurately considering the paedobaptist’s position. Their arguments are well-reasoned and balanced and they fairly represent the opposing view. The authors go to great lengths to remind the reader that good evangelical believers can and do disagree on these issues and that the opposing views of reformed paedobaptists should not be considered heretical.
