Baptism: Answers to Common Questions, New from Guy Richard and Reformation Trust
When Jesus commanded His followers to go and make disciples of all nations, He instructed them to baptize those disciples in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Although Christians agree that baptism is important, it is the subject of many disputes. Why has it been so controversial?
In Baptism: Answers to Common Questions, Dr. Guy Richard tackles the key questions people have about baptism: What does it mean? Is it necessary for salvation? Who should be baptized, and how should we baptize them? As he searches the Scriptures, Dr. Richard helps us think through what the Bible teaches about baptism and encourages us to deal graciously with our brothers and sisters in Christ even when we disagree.
“This is a good introduction to baptism, written in an irenic spirit and covering a wide range of relevant material. I expect that many will find this helpful and will come to a richer appreciation of what baptism signifies.”
—Dr. Robert Letham
Professor of systematic and historical theology at Union School of Theology, Oxford, England
“Dr. Richard is a sure and trusted guide on the issue of baptism. This is a delightful resource, particularly for paedobaptists. It will be a go-to and concise guide to give to parents who are bringing their covenant children for baptism. An absolutely essential resource.”
—Dr. Derek Thomas
Senior minister at First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, S.C.
