1) Believer’s Baptism: Sign of the New Covenant in Christ (New American Commentary Studies in Bible & Theology)
Believer’s Baptism: Sign of the New Covenant in Christ is part of the New American Commentary Studies in Bible & Theology. In it, contributors support the belief that a believer’s baptism (rather than an infant baptism or other faith proclaiming methods) is the clear teaching of the New Testament. A well rounded defense of the practice from a variety of well respected scholars of a diverse range of theological disciplines.
2) Understanding Four Views on Baptism (Counterpoints: Church Life)Price Disclaimer
Editor John H. Armstrong presents Understanding Four Views on Baptism for the Counterpoints: Church Life series. This thought-provoking book gives readers four historic and in-depth views on baptism from contributors John Castelein, Robert Kolb, Thomas J. Nettles and Richard Pratt Jr. A helpful read to better understand the positions and reasoning of the differing views on baptism.
3) Baptism in the New Testament
G. R. Beasley-Murray’s classic Baptism in the New Testament presents a scholarly defense of the doctrine of believers’ baptism on the basis of the New Testament evidence. A timeless resource book for an in-depth study of baptism, in spite of it being nearly 45 years since its publication. Beasley-Murray does a great job of presenting various views of baptism before arguing his own.
4) Baptism: Three Views
Baptism: Three Views offers a look at infant baptism (written by Sinclair Ferguson), believers’ baptism (written by Bruce Ware) and mixed practice baptism (written by Anthony Lane). The structure of this thought-provoking book is that each scholar gives his argument for his own position using biblical, theological, and historical support. After each presentation – the other two author’s counter, and the presenter responds to the two counter arguments.
