Publisher's Description

A warm and engaging guide to the Bible’s teaching on baptism, told through conversations between a young churchgoer and a pastor. Be enlightened and challenged by this refreshing new version of an important book.

Author Bio

James M. Chaney (18311909) graduated from the William Jewell College in Missouri, received a Masters degree from King College in Tennessee, and a Doctor of Divinity degree from Princeton Theological Seminary in New Jersey. He was ordained in 1858 by the Lafayette Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church, Missouri.

Editorial Reviews

“With warmth and imagination, Chaney uses an engaging story-telling method, winsomely guiding readers through the Bible’s teaching on baptism. William the Baptist is an enlightening read for all who assume the Bible teaches credo-baptism and immersion. Chaney’s persuasive book also provides a confessional corrective to hyper-covenantalism, poised to infuse baptism with medieval efficacy. With editorial and theological integrity, Ron Evans has breathed refreshing life into this important 19th century volume, making the Reformed doctrine of baptism understandable to all Christians. An invaluable resource for exploring the meaning of baptism.”
William the Baptist was unquestionably and uniquely effective when I read it years ago. In addressing the issue of the biblical mode of baptism (effusion, aspersion, or emersion) to pour, sprinkle or dunk, the writer James Chaney uses a method of walking the reader through a conversation between two individuals ultimately committed to investigating what the Bible teaches concerning the matter. Using the dialogue approach it presents a narrative that is fast moving and Biblical engaging while recognizing that the mode of baptism is not an essential doctrine for salvation but it also recognizes that it is not unimportant but has far reaching implications in one’s understanding of theology in general and the Gospel in particular. It is a page turner which Ronald Evans has enhanced by updating it into today’s language. An intriguing short read with life-long implications. Enjoy it.
