What is Baptism ~ My Review ~ Free on Amazon

 Baptism is taught in the Bible and has been practiced for centuries, but understanding of its meaning and respect for its importance is at a low ebb today. Confusion reigns over questions about its mode and its place in the life of the Christian, and as a result, even many evangelical congregations are downplaying its significance.

Dr. R.C. Sproul is founder and chairman of Ligonier Ministries, an international Christian education ministry located near Orlando, Fla. He is also co-pastor of Saint Andrew's Chapel in Sanford, Fla., chancellor of Reformation Bible College, and executive editor of Tabletalk magazine. He can be heard on the radio program Renewing Your Mind, which is broadcast on hundreds of radio outlets in the United States and around the world, and on RefNet 24-hour Christian internet radio. Dr. Sproul has contributed dozens of articles to national evangelical publications, has spoken at conferences, churches, and schools around the world, and has written more than ninety books, including The Holiness of God, Faith Alone, and Everyone's a Theologian. He also serves as general editor of The Reformation Study Bible.

My Review

This short book is part of a series describing the different aspects of baptism. In an unbiased, easy to understand way, Dr. Sproul explains the difference between believer’s baptism and infant baptism. He goes over the views of baptism of the Catholics, Reformers, and other fundamentalist Christians. He also touches on the association of baptism with salvation as well as the difference between John the Baptist's and Christian's baptism. 
I personally love R.C. Sproul's teaching on theology. This book was very informative, enjoyable and easy to understand. I would recommend it to anyone who has questions pertaining to baptism. It would be perfect for a Bible study and Sunday school group or any individual interested in the subject.
