Baptism: Its Purpose, Practice and Power


Paternoster 1987

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Baptism: It’s Purpose, Practice and Power is a classic introduction to the practice and theology of baptism from a well known evangelical Anglican writer. Michael Green provides a bold, clear explanation of the different approaches, examining clear biblical evidence and teaching. Common ground between the churches is emphasized, along with the insistence that baptism is no substitute for saving faith. Even so, the author’s conviction of the validity and benefits of infant baptism, in appropriate circumstances, is presented with energy and thoroughness. This accessible account will help many to a deeper understanding of the real significance of baptism.

Praise for the Print Edition

Michael Green’s book on Baptism is a classic. With his usual clear, punchy style and his profound knowledge of the biblical and historical background, he is an excellent guide to this vital topic for the church's life and health.

—Graham Tomlin, Principal of the St. Paul’s Theological Centre, Holy Trinity Brompton, London
