This excellent booklet presents the Reformed and Presbyterian position on
baptism by setting forth the various passages of Scripture dealing with
this important and controversial subject. It is essentially a detailed Bible study, though the writer has drawn on
a number of commentators and theologians. After considering the meaning
of baptism, the main part is a thorough examination of the texts
relating to mode. Not one clear example of baptism by immersion is found
in the New Testament. Indeed, the circumstances of text after text point
to affusion or aspersion as the only possible way in which baptism could
have been administered. This conclusion is
strengthened by the fact that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is spoken
of in terms of coming from above in pouring, and that affusions and aspersions are frequent in the Old Testament. Baptism:
Meaning, Mode and Subjects concludes with a brief treatment of the
covenant position of believers' children.
