Book Review: Understanding Baptism

Understanding BaptismUnderstanding Baptism by Bobby Jamieson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a clear, concise, and readable book. Jamieson does a good job explaining baptism. I greatly appreciated the emphasis on the Gospel in connection to baptism, how baptism is a public profession, and the connection with church membership. I disagreed with his take on the lone Christian and baptism. He overworked the Acts 8 passage on the baptism of the Ethiopian Eunuch. If he had just left that out, this already strong book would’ve been stronger. Overall the book is helpful and worth reading.
