Review 1 for Believer's Baptism: Sign of the New Covenant in Christ
Date:October 28, 2009
This is a well-written study of baptism, but it does not succeed in disproving infant baptism. The spirit in which it is written is very Christ-like. It focuses largely on the covenantal theology of Reformed and Presbyterian churches. In the end it fails to show that the Abrahamic covenant ended at the cross. This is a very important consideration. The concept of baptism being the sign of the NEW covenant of Jeremiah 31, although consistent with Baptist theology, is essentially unfounded.

An excellent presentation of the case for the baptism of believers only, presented from a biblical basis and explained within a theological framework.
