Highly recommended. Clear, Biblical and simple. 14 Aug. 2014
By Scott Kimbrough - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Perhaps no other work within Anglicansim, after Canon Michael Green's /Baptism: It's Purpose, Practice and Power/, first published in 1987, speaks with clarity on this "...controversial and sometimes perplexing subject." It's worth reading to understand the Anglican Evangelical position on baptism. Well articulated, whether you agree or not, as a position of integrity defended by a well-respected British AE Biblical scholar and theologian, The Rev. Dr. Alec Motyer, perhaps best known for his Isaiah commentary. The Rev. Dr. John R. W. Stott, the Rector Emeritus of All Soul's Langham Place, London, and de-facto Anglican Evangelical figurehead throughout the latter half of the 20th and beginning of the 21st century, contributes too. Recommended by the Church Society, and the work of The Rev. Lee Gatiss brings it forth to modern audiences. Two published papers under one volume. Quite readible on the Kindle.

If you happen to be an Anglican or an Episcopalian, I especially think you /ought/ to read it so you understand what it is, truly, that EAs believe about the sacrament. This Reformed position differs slightly from the covenantal model adopted by Presbyterians and other Reformed denominations, though often the Evangelical position is lumped together with the Presbyterian. Upholds the Sacrament as a sign and seal of title to the gift of union with Christ, by divine action, received by faith; thus denying that the sign always signifies nothing, and equally denying that the sign always causes its gift. Draws upon the NT, the BCP, The Thirty-Nine Articles, and historical sources. Heavily, heavily endnoted.

The authors aim to address three concerns. First, little has been written on the topic which needs addressing. Second, to clear "...confusion regarding baptism in a number of our churches at present," apparently due to a lapse by some into anti-paedobaptism. Third, to articulate the Evangelical position vis-a-vis the renewed interest in baptism enjoyed by Reformed and conservative evangelical denominations in the UK and US, who have defended "less mainstream evangelical views" They have in mind here New Perspective and "Federal Vision" theologically informed positions.

Best book on baptism I've read 6 Jan. 2014
By Linda Dykstra - Published on
Format: Paperback
Wow!! This is the best and most thorough read on baptism I have ever read! I read Baptism: Three Views and didn’t think any side really gave a winning argument. I also read What Christian Parents Should Know About Infant Baptism by John P. Sartelle and I’m well familiar with the credo view given by theologians like Wayne Grudem and I just haven’t ever found anything that I felt gave a convincing enough argument for baptism. I’m not one to be dogmatic about a particular view of baptism but I remained in want of a good solid explanation of baptism for myself. This book lays out the covenant view beautifully as well as addresses the weaknesses of other views. I am so glad I found this gem! (Kindle Edition)

Great Resource for Pastors 23 Aug. 2013
By ST - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
As a pastor I'm constantly looking for succinct, theologically rich resources. This little book fits the bill. It explains well the connection between baptism and God's everlasting covenant with His people. Even as a Presbyterian I found it very helpful. While it may be over the heads of many lay people, if you're a pastor or a serious student of theology, you'll find this book very helpful.
