The Meaning and Mode of BaptismBy: Jay Edward Adams, Matthew Adams
|Presbyterian and Reformed
The sound of the immersionist's voice is heard everywhere. Very few voices are raised in opposition. It does make a difference whether it is death, burial, and resurrection (as symbolized by immersion), or the descent of the Holy Spirit into the Christian's life, bringing cleansing from sin and union with Christ (as symbolized by pouring), that God intended to portray through baptism. Correct meaning can be communicated only by the correct mode of baptism. - Introduction. In this little volume, Adams sets forth a compelling argument for sprinkling as the biblical means of baptism. (Infant baptism, however, is not part of the scope of this book.) - Eric Anderson, goodreads.com.
