A sampling of key questions addressed:
- What is a sacrament, and how does it differ from an "ordinance"?
- What's the relationship between baptism and being "born again"?
- How do the sacraments bring God's grace to us?
- Can someone be "saved" without being baptized? Can someone be baptized without being saved?
- Does baptism take the place of circumcision as the mark of the new covenant?
- What is "confirmation" or "profession of faith," and what is its relationship to baptism?
- What happens after baptism?
"I highly recommend the Brownson book for use in local churches by pastors, church boards, and adult education teachers. "
Pittsburgh Theological Seminary
"James Brownson has written a book that is theologically solid and accessible to a broad church audience. Demonstrating a thorough familiarity with the Scriptures and the Reformed tradition, he tackles the knotty questions that arise in many Protestant congregations today: Is baptism necessary for salvation? Who was eligible for baptism in the early church? Why do different denominations view baptism in different ways? If you have ever wondered whether or why babies should be baptized, Brownson will help you rediscover the power of God's covenant promises."
