Baptism : A Guide To Life From Death$15.99Add to cart
You’ve been baptized. But do you understand what it means?
Baptism is the doorway into membership in the church. It’s a public declaration of the washing away of our sin and the beginning of our new life in Christ. But the sacrament that is meant to unite us is often a spring of division instead.
All Christians use water to baptize. All invoke the triune name. Beyond that, there’s little consensus. Talk about baptism and you’re immediately plunged into arguments. Whom should we baptize? What does baptism do? Why even do it at all?
Peter Leithart reunifies a church divided by baptism. He recovers the baptismal imagination of the Bible, explaining how baptism works according to Scripture. Then, in conversation with Christian tradition, he shows why baptism is something worth recovering and worth agreeing on.

Baptism In The Holy Spirit (Anniversary)$44.99Add to cart
Baptism in the Holy Spirit is one of James Dunn’s most influential books and has become a classic. Forty years after its original publication it still sparks debate and appears on many Reading lists. In an extensive Preface to this fortieth anniversary edition, James Dunn engages with the debates about the book since it was first published. In Baptism in the Holy Spirit James Dunn argues that water baptism is only one element in the New Testament pattern of conversion and initiation. The gift of the Spirit, he believes, is the central element. For the writers of the New Testament only those who had received the Holy Spirit could be called Christians. For them, the reception of the Spirit was a very definite and often very dramatic experience–the decisive and climactic experience in conversion and initiation–to which Christians were usually recalled when reminded of their Christian faith and experience. James Dunn uncovers the place of the gift of the Holy Spirit in the total complex event of becoming a Christian.

Baptism : A Users Guide$18.00Add to cart
To see baptism as merely a ceremony greatly limits the meanings of Christian baptism, says Martin Marty, in this practical and inspirational new look at baptism. Martin Luther recommended that believers should begin and end their day reminding themselves of their baptism and then go to work joyfully or to sleep cheerfully.
Baptism, says Marty, is at the heart of the everyday, life-long spiritual journey as he explores such questions as:
How did early Christians understand and practice baptism?
What difference does baptism make in our daily life?
How does baptism manifest itself in our relationships, our choices, our faith?
With great insight and wisdom Marty brings us both the history of baptism and a useful guide to its application for everyday life. The book includes questions for reflection and discussion.

Essential New Testament$17.99Add to cart
The Essential New Testament is a new translation of the New Testament from the Greek text. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that every time the word “baptism” occurs in the New Testament (approximately ninety-five times), it is translated “immersion” or the grammatically appropriate form of that word. This translation should be an asset to pastors who preach immersion as the only form of baptism. It should also be helpful in new members’ classes where immersion is taught. It is so much easier for a baptism candidate to understand why baptism is by immersion if he or she has a New Testament Translation that has the word “immersion” in place of the word “baptism.” I think that pastors and lay leaders who believe baptism is to be done by “sprinkling” should also put together a New Testament, replacing the word “baptism” with “sprinkling.” The good news is that no matter which form of baptism people practice, salvation comes by faith in the Christ of the Bible and not from any form of baptism.

Church : Contours Of Christian Theology$35.00Add to cart
Perhaps no other doctrine has more tangible impact on Christians that their doctrine of the church. In a cultural climate where the very word church sounds a tone of dull irrelevance, the doctrine of the church has suffered studied neglect. The persistent demands to market and grow the church threaten to quench serious theological reflection on its abiding nature and mission. But few activities bear greater promise for renewing and reshaping the church than the work of theology. Edmund Clowney addresses these issues from decades of thinking and teaching. Biblical, historical, systematic and reformed, The Church is a timely reflection on the life, order and purpose of the household of God.
What Do Lutherans Believe About Baptism$5.95Add to cart
How can pastors explain infant baptism using scripture? When John Conrad looked for resources to help him, he found none that addressed the issue from an almost exclusively scriptural viewpoint. And he discovered that couples from differing religious backgrounds (such as Baptist and Roman Catholic) often opted not to baptize their children mainly because they couldn’t come to any point of agreement. So Conrad decided to fill this void — and his research is an excellent clarification of this often murky topic. What Do Lutherans Believe About Baptism? will be useful to pastors as background for a sermon series or as information to share with parents preparing for baptism. It also makes for an excellent short study on baptism for adult classes.
Mystery Of Baptism$30.95Add to cart
As the Church continues to try to clarify the meaning of baptism, well-known liturgical scholar Kenneth Stevenson provides important insights into the historical issues with which we still wrestle. Is baptism a private or a public act? Is the symbolism of the rite still appropriate? Does the language of the baptismal service remain meaningful in a secular age? In order to answer these and other pressing questions, we must understand the thinking of those who have come before us. Stevenson does just that by looking at the writings of the 17th century Anglican divines such as Lancelot Andrewes, George Herbert, Richard Hooker, Richard Baxter, Jeremy Taylor and others, all of whom have a vital and prophetic significance for our understanding and practice of baptism today. Dr. Kenneth Stevenson is the Bishop of Portsmouth and a leading Anglican scholar. A member of the Doctrine Commission of the Church of England, he is the author of numerous books, including Covenant of Grace Renewed and The Mystery of the Eucharist in the Anglican Tradition, which is available from Morehouse Publishing, and Abba, Father.
Baptism$24.99Add to cart
Baptism is a gift from God to the church. If it is not, why make such a fuss about it? We may as well abolish the practice and thus put an end to the confusion and competing notions that surround it. Baptism is God’s gift to the church, Christ’s act within the church. This is a fundamental assumption. Now we must try to make sense of such a bold assertion. Few issues within the church are as controversial as baptism. By which method should it be administered? At what age? What if one changes denominations? Laurence Stookey sifts through the confusion and rhetoric to offer this practical, biblically sound guide to baptism. He examines the sacrament from historical, theological, and pastoral perspectives, and looks at how it has been altered through the ages. Stookey also suggests possible reforms, practices that need restoring and proper occasions for the service.
