This book offers a Baptist view of baptism. It deals with believer's baptism and offers insights into the mode (immersion) and purpose of baptism (a ceremony demonstrating Christian commitment).The problem with this book is that the author fails to deal properly with baptismal passages. For example, after seeking to establish that a person is saved by faith alone, the author seeks to downplay baptism and obedience but defeats his purpose of the book. If baptism is commanded by our Lord (Matt. 28:19; Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38), why not make baptism not only the first act of obedience (Acts 5:32) but part of the salvation message?By separating baptism from the gospel message in exchange for unbiblical methods such as the sinner's prayer, altar calls, or other evangelical methods, the case for baptism is weaken.
