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)


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.

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.


5) Baptism in the Early Church: History, Theology, and Liturgy in the First Five Centuries



Baptism in the Early Church: History, Theology, and Liturgy in the First Five Centuries is an in-depth (nearly 1000 pages) survey of the doctrine and practice of baptism in the first five centuries of Christian history.  Written by Everett Ferguson (professor emeritus of Bible and distinguished scholar-in-residence at Abilene Christian University, Abilene, Texas) the book is arranged geographically within chronological periods.  A powerful, comprehensive study of baptism.
