Baptism is an issue that has long divided the Christian church, and it is an argument that has not made much progress. Each camp discusses the same biblical data, but without hearing each other. This book looks at why we have these camps, and why we persist in misunderstanding one another. It shows how correcting our foundations and assumptions suggests a fresh solution to the problem of baptism.
Theolgy matters. Disagreements exist within the Reformed confessional tradition, and we know that debates can often descend into name-calling and straw man arguments. This booklet contains two brief summaries - one by a pastor of paedo-baptist persuasion, one by a Baptist pastor - on a subject that matters. They've both presented their own arguments clearly and fairly.
