Is believer's baptism the clear teaching of the New Testament Scriptures? What are the historical and theological challenges to believer's baptism? What are the practical applications for believer's baptism today? Volume two in the NEW AMERICAN COMMENTARY STUDIES IN BIBLE & THEOLOGY (NACSBT) series for pastors, advanced Bible students, and other deeply committed laypersons addresses these compelling questions.
Indeed, "Believer's Baptism "begins with the belief that believer's baptism (as opposed to infant baptism or other faith proclaiming methods) is the clear teaching of the New Testament. Along the way, the argument is supported by written contributions from Andreas Kostenberger, Robert Stein, Thomas Schreiner, Stephen Wellum, Steve McKinion, Jonathan Rainbow, Shawn Wright, and Mark Dever.
Users will find this an excellent extension of the long-respected NEW AMERICAN COMMENTARY.

Reviews - What do customers think about Believer's Baptism: Sign of the New Covenant in Christ (Nac Studies in Bible & Theology)?
Great Biblical Interaction with various views of Baptism Mar 10, 2007
Another reviewer said this book can be read in 2 hours!!! I read academic books all the time and that reviewer must be an amazing speed reader. I have really been edified by this book. It explains the various views of baptism very fairly. I am not a Baptist but do believe in believers baptism. This book confirmed me in my view of Baptism and completely eliminated any intimitation of other views. The various scholars deal respectfully with all views of baptism throughout church history and then contrast them with good biblical exegesis. I doubt if many will be able to read the book in two hours - or even some of the chapters in two hours - but this will be a forever resourse on the subject of believers baptism.
An Excellent Study on Baptism Mar 3, 2007
I purchased this book with great skepticism. I assumed that the book would be nothing more than a book defending the Southern Baptist position on baptism namely that believer's alone should be baptized (which I agree with by the way) but would not interact much with those who disagree except in passing. This is not the case with this book.
BELIEVER'S BAPTISM does a good job of first of all laying a solid biblical and theological foundation for believer's baptism and then does a good job of defending it against those who would disagree from both contemporary and from historical theologians who argue for infant baptism. Furthermore, the book allows a few chapters to be given for presenting arguments for infant baptism and for the Restoration movement view that baptism is essential for salvation. The book does not present baptism merely as a token Christian memorial but a very important biblical topic.
The chapters are not very long and the book can be easily read in just a couple of hours. While there are some theological terms thrown here and there, overall the book is an easy read and the plus is that it is full of Scripture. Overall I enjoyed this book and gladly recommend it to you all to study.
