Item Description...
This classic work by John Murray sets forth clearly the scriptural arguments basic to the presbyterian teaching on baptism. Focusing on the central significance of that sacrament, Murray sheds light on related questions in terms of God's redemptive covenant with His people. All who desire a better understanding of Christian baptism will benefit from Professor Murray's cogent and systematic treatment of the issues.

Great overview of baptism and defense of infant baptism  Oct 18, 2006
In my search for what to believe about the what, why, how, and whom of baptism this book was most helpful. Murry gives the fullest, most bible-based explanation of baptism I have read to date. He systematically addresses all the pertinent issues using scripture as his base with helpful footnotes explaining what various creeds and theologians have said as well. His defense of infant baptism is grounded in the covenants of the Old Testament carried through a close examination of Acts and the New Testament letters.

The only problem with this book is the use of Greek and Hebrew letters in the discussion about the meanings of words in regard to what baptism is and is not. I have a very rudimentary understanding of Greek pronunciation, and no idea how to pronounce Hebrew letters. This was highly distracting while trying to follow a fairly complex arguement. I would like to see an edition of this book with English pronunications inserted after the Greek and Hebrew words.

Although I am not thoroughly convinced infant baptism is the way to go this book gave me a lot to ponder as I turn my sights on the last leg of this journey to find out what to do regarding my children.

Highly recommended.
Meticulous & careful exegesis...  Feb 20, 2006
... by a master Theologian. While those who deny the validity of the baptism of the children of believers are many & make much noise, their arguments upon closer examination are less than convincing. Prof Murray lays out a careful and quite biblical exposition of the classic reformed view on baptism which includes not only converts, but the children of converts as well.
If you have an open mind, the least you can say after reading this book is that he has laid out a plausible case for his position.
Of course, if you are wedded to the American (& now Western) emphasis upon "individualism," you will not be convinced. Quite frankly, that is because of the individualistic grid through which you read the scriptures. However, non-western peoples have little problem understanding the Covenantal position on household baptisms.
How you will view the matter of baptism all depends upon your starting world view. Not exegesis.


Christian Baptism: Maybe  May 31, 2001
This book was a short review of the Presbyterian view of baptism at the turn of the century. The primary purpose of the book was to defend their doctrine against baptist doctrines. The biggest problem with this book is that it is so out of date, that it contradicts some of the current teachings of a most of the Presbyterian churches today. Second of all, John Murray's arguments are very verbose and miss applied/ circular logic making it hard to read at times. But this has to be the best book around at presenting the antibaptist view of baptism.
(NOTE: This is my second review of this book and my oppinion of it has increased dramatically since reading it the first time. This book shines where so many fall.)
