Product Description

Herman Otten writes: Dr. Dale's careful examination of Bapto and Baptizo in their historical contexts-rather than a mere appeal to dictionaries-is the kind of primary scholarship that Luther and the early Reformers insisted upon. These volumes will enlighten Lutherans as to the historical matrix out of which our views of baptism have come and, therefore, can become valuable study aids for pastors, teachers, and laymen.

Publisher's Description

An inquiry into the meaning of 'baptizo' in the holy Scriptures and patristic writings.

Editorial Reviews

Dr. Dale’s careful examination of Bapto and Baptizo in their historical contexts—rather than a mere appeal to dictionaries—is the kind of primary scholarship that Luther and the early Reformers insisted upon. These volumes will enlighten Lutherans as to the historical matrix out of which our views of baptism have come and, therefore, can become valuable study aids for pastors, teachers, and laymen.
In Patristic Baptism James W. Dale continues the method employed so thoroughlyin his previous volumes. Commenting on every Patristic usageof baptizo from the first century into the fifth century, he concludes that the Greek work cannot be limited to a momentary dipping. Those interested in the ecclesiastical as well as Scriptural meaning of this term can be grateful to Dr. Robert Countess aand the publishers for making this nineteenth-century work available again.
one does not have to agree entirely with Dale’s position on baptism, or be fully comfortable with his somewhat polemical approach to the topic, in order to appreciate the wealth of information that is available in his four volumes on baptism. His Christic and Patristic Baptism, a tome of 670 pages originally intended tio be two seperate volumes, provides in a single volume a thorough discussion of the baptism that Jesus received and that was practiced in his name in the New Testament times, while at the same time documenting the practice of baptism in the earkly Patristic period. It is a pleasure to welcome all four of these nineteenth-century volumes back into print.
Baptism is important to all Christians. Yet its mode and recipients have been matters of dispute between serious Christians. Dale’s work gives one the data to make decisions on the question of the mode of baptism. I commend it aas a model of serious scholarship in search of defensible theological conclusions.
