Believer’s Baptism Now Shipping from Amazon

In recent days I have been greatly encouraged by the direction of Broadman & Holman. Their new academic line is producing substantial theological literature. I believe this will help to fill a great void in the contemporary Christian publishing industry. The new B & H series, NAC Studies in Bible and Theology, is an especially encouraging one. The first volume was God’s Indwelling Presence by James Hamilton. I received it for Christmas and I thoroughly enjoyed Dr. Hamilton’s engagement with both Scripture and theology. Though I may not have agreed with every jot and tittle of the book, the overall argument has helped to clarify my thinking in the key area which it addresses: Is the indwelling a new experience for New Covenant believers? In short, I was helped by this book.

The second volume in this series has now been released and is titled simply Believer’s Baptism. I had preordered this volume from Amazon a couple of weeks ago and I was notified today that it has been shipped. I look forward to receiving and reading this volume. Here is the product description provided by Amazon.com:

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.
