New! A Downloadable Resource About Baptism
Now you can have the helpful discussions of baptism from this and last week’s issues in one convenient resource. Order “Baptism” (Item number 02973) from the Standard Publishing Web site www.standardpub.com to download the following compilation in one handy piece (and at a special introductory rate). It contains all the following:
“Remember Your Baptism” by Bruce E. Shields. “Baptism puts us into such a close relationship with Christ that it’s like being a part of him.” What does this mean for the person contemplating baptism, or for the Christian baptized long ago?
“What Baptism Requests” by Jon Weatherly. Contemporary scholars from several traditions agree: “In its biblical setting, baptism belonged in the context of conversion. Early Christians understood that a person should be baptized when becoming a Christian, not before or after.”
“What Happened When I Preached on Baptism” by Brian Jones. Some potential members left, but since then the church has baptized many hundreds.
“Christian Standard Interview: Joe Grana” by Brad Dupray. This church ministry professor speaks about water regeneration, the New Testament model, and the historical and contemporary practice of baptism in Christian churches.
“Understanding Four Views of Baptism” by Mark Krause. The historic Christian church position on baptism was one of four considered in Understanding Four Views on Baptism published by Zondervan. Krause reviews the positions and the book.
Your purchase of this downloadable resource grants you permission to make 10 copies. Many churches will want to keep multiple copies to help in their teaching and outreach ministries.
