Item Description...
'More Than a Symbol' seeks to demonstrate that the interpretation of baptism as a mere symbol bearing witness to a previously completed conversion experience is inadequate both as a summary of biblical teaching and as a summary of Baptist thought. Starting with H. Wheeler Robinson and culminating in the work of G. R. Beasley-Murray, British Baptists in the twentieth century argued effectively that baptism must be interpreted as an effective sign, a meeting place of grace and faith, a sacrament rather than a mere symbol. This book argues that the New Testament exegesis that is at the heart of this reformulation is fundamentally accurate, and that the resulting system is theologically coherent. The book also argues that this view is not a Baptist novelty, but is rather a recovery of the foundational Baptist thought of the seventeenth century.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent Resource, But Largely Inacessible to Laymen  Oct 9, 2008
This book is an excellent resource; it ought to be required reading at all Baptist seminaries. Its historical analysis is comprehensive, its Biblical exegesis is generally quite good, and its conclusions are both compelling and convincing. The only real problem with the book is that it's so dense and occasionally tedious that only those seriously committed to finishing it will get through the first half. As such it's largely inaccessable to a lay audience.
