Product Description

Baptism has been a contested practice from the very beginning of the church. In this volume, Ben Witherington rethinks the theology of baptism and does so in constant conversation with the classic theological positions and central New Testament texts. By placing baptism in the context of the covenant, Witherington shows how advocates of both believer's baptism and infant baptism have added some water to both their theology and practice of baptism.

Endorsements

(Witherington) offers pastoral guidance and correctives for both baptismal practices so that the fuller goals for Christian baptism will be achieved.
-David A. deSilva,
Trustees Professor of New Testament and Greek, Ashland Theological Seminary

Baptism debates flooded churches and seminaries a generation back and, without settling issues once and for all, the flood subsided. Standing now alone, with a peaceful olive branch in his hand, is Ben Witherington, asking Christians once again to go back both to those debates and to the Bible. Let's join him.
-Scot McKnight,
Karl A. Olsson Professor in Religious Studies, North Park University
