BAPTISMAL regeneration is not the question of the hour; it is rather around the other sacrament that, for the time being, discussion is most active. Yet, since Holy Baptism is the initiatory rite of our faith, the doctrine of Baptism must needs have to do with what is fundamental in the Christian system, whatever our theory of that system may be. My endeavor, in this little volume, has been to examine carefully and impartially the revelation that has been made on this all-important subject. In doing so I shall have to point out wherein it differs both from the teaching of the Oxford school, and from certain inexact views on the subject, which sometimes prevail amongst those who have no sympathy with that movement. All that I ask of my readers is a painstaking and unprejudiced consideration of my argument; let it be tested by an appeal to revelation, enforced with rigorous logic, and by this let my conclusions stand or fall.
