Baptism in the Early Church
Scott McKnight at Jesus Creed hopes to start a substantial Saturday book review. The initial post may interest members of the Stone-Campbell Movement. Reviewed by Marius Nel, the book by Everett Ferguson is Baptism in the Early Church: History, Theology, and Liturgy in the First Five Centuries. Anyone researching the origins and practice of baptism will need to consult this major work. For those who don't know Ferguson's work, he is a highly respected teacher, church historian, and long-time member of the Church of Christ.
