This is a good theological and pastoral look at Baptism. Green draws together three strands from the Christian tradition on Baptism: The Catholic strand which sees Baptism as a seal of salvation, the protestant strand, which emphasizes human response, and the Pentacostal strand which emphasizes the life of the Spirit. This gives Green a full bodied look at the Sacrament.

He reviews the Biblical material on Baptism, and deals with practical questions about differing views (Green as an Anglican is a proponent of Infant Baptism). His style is irenic and generous. This is a good resource to have on your shelf. ( )

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.Through the examination of biblical evidence and teaching, Michael Green provides a bold, clear explanation of the different approaches of baptism: as an infant, as a believer and by the Holy Spirit.

Even so, the authors conviction of the validity and benefits of infant baptism, in appropriate circumstances, is presented with thoughtfulness and energy. This popular account will help many to a deeper understanding of the real significance of baptism.… (more)
