Product Description

James W. Dale explains the differences in thinking about the word for baptism that appears in the New Testament. He argues that baptism is a condition, not an act, and that the Bible never states how baptism is to be done. He is not arguing for any particular side of how to baptize, but instead argues against dogmatism that insists that baptism should be done in one particular manner when the Bible never states what that manner should be.

Editorial Reviews

In terms of comprehensiveness as well as irenic temper in discussion, Dale’s work is a model of thorough and patient research. Both the church historian and lexicographer will be grateful for this scholarly work. Dr. Countess is to be commended for overseeing the reprinting of this classic investigation concerning the usage of the Greek word meaning ‘baptize.’
Serious Bible students welcome the reprint of Dr. Dale’s five volumes on baptism. This third volume will give contemporary New Testament scholars new and fertile ground for soil turning and cultivating. A careful, open-minded study, Johannic Baptism will inform and enlighten all readers.
The republication of Dale’s series of studies on baptism, first issued about 120 years ago, reveals the status of discussion at that time but also makes available to the student a collection of data otherwise extremely hard to come by.
The publishers are to be highly commended for putting into print once again these volumes by James W. Dale on the issue of the biblical mode of baptism. With his Classic Baptism and Judaic Baptism already in the hands of the reading public, now comes Johannic Baptism—his profound analysis of John the Baptist’s mode of baptism. “Johannic Baptism adds its irrefutable, sober, ‘drumbeat’ conclusion that pure water, whether sprinkled, poured, or otherwise applied to a person, is able to symbolize the soul baptism John preached and thus both maintains the classic truth of the word baptize and fulfills the symbolic rite ordained through John the Baptist. “It is my fond hope that the republication of Dale’s careful study will help to remove from the Christian scene an embarrassing cause of division over baptismal mode, a schism within Christendom that never should have occurred.”
