Reviewed by Nick Gill.

Baptism is a volatile subject among Christians. Lest we forget, men and women have lost their lives in centuries past in the struggle to honor their understanding of Christian baptism. Not only that, many parents have wrestled with the fact that the New Testament gives no direct guidance for how to handle the initiation of their believing children into the covenant community. I hoped for three things from this text: arguments that honored Christ, that respected the authority of Scripture, and that interacted with each others’ arguments. While I do not fully agree with any of the arguments set forth, I can vouch without qualification that these three men exceeded my hopes and expectations in these areas.

The bread-n-butter of our bookstore business is the sale of used books, and we do a fair amount of scouting around for used books each week. In this section we feature some of the interesting books that we have found in the past week. Generally, we will only have a single copy of these books, so if you want one (or more) of them, you’ll need to respond quickly.
