This book covers the topic of baptism from top to bottom in its 450+ pages. Campbell shows the use of the Greek words in the Bible and other ancient writings. He shows how the word baptizo (and its related terms) were translated in the oldest translations of the Bible. He shows from the Bible that there was only one way baptism was understood.
Written in part to combat the doctrine of infant baptism and the doctrines of sprinkling or pouring as baptism, this book is a thoroughly honest and in-depth look at a topic that many people take for granted. Make sure to check out the 134 questions about infant baptism near the end of the book.
NOTE: This book is now available in a fully re-formatted PDF file, searchable and clickable, here.
