Baptism: What Saith the Scripture?


Loizeaux Brothers 1901

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


How is baptism connected to conversion? Forgiveness? Salvation? Should the church baptize children? Can someone be baptized twice? Who has the authority to baptize? The controversy which surrounds these topics stems from too much philosophizing and, says Ironside, a misreading of Scripture. Ironside aims to solve the problem by offering a comprehensive and clear scriptural teaching on baptism. He examines the words of Jesus, the ministry of Paul, and the controversies in the New Testament church. In the end, Ironside faults many preachers and teachers for reading their own teaching into Scripture; not deriving their teaching out of Scripture—the proper way to adduce a theology of Baptism.

Baptism: What Saith the Scripture? addresses significant issues from Ironside’s own life—appropriately so, since discussions about baptism are as much theological topics as they are autobiographical stories.

About H. A. Ironside

H. A. Ironside, one of the twentieth century’s greatest preachers, was born in Toronto, Canada on October 14, 1876. Though his education stopped with grammar school, his fondness for reading and a retentive memory put his learning to use. His scholarship was recognized in academic circles when he received honorary degrees from Wheaton College and Bob Jones University and was invited as frequent lecturer at Dallas Theological Seminary. Dr. Ironside was appointed to the boards of numerous Bible institutes, seminaries, and Christian organizations. He also served as director of the Africa Inland Mission. Ironside preached widely throughout the United States and abroad. He served as pastor of Moody Memorial Church from 1930 to 1948, and during his lifetime, he preached more than 7,000 sermons to over 1.25 million listeners.
