Everett Ferguson's Baptism in the Early Church is a comprehensive survey of the doctrine and practice of baptism in the first five centuries of Christian history. Ferguson has evaluated every important document and baptismal font and arranged them geographically into chronological period. He further delineates the diversity of the beliefs and practices he's researched and shed enormous light on how we should understand this powerful rite of initiation. With extensive citations to primary and secondary literature, Ferguson's monumental work is destined to be an extremely valuable reference tool.
