Really Made Me Think

I received this book through a Goodreads giveaway.

Rebaptism is a subject in which I have been interested for a long time. I know there are many different opinions on baptism and on types of baptism.

I found Dallmann's book interesting and informative. It was full of examples that really made me think.

Excellent Source

This is an excellent source for differentiating the term baptism throughout the Bible.

I will be referring to it when I have yet another hungry soul wanting to get closer to God through water baptism & ultimately through the baptism of the Holy Spirit.

Brian E.

This book was a gift from the author, both in the literal sense that he loaned it to me so that I could review it and because it was used of God to remind me of His ever renewing power.

As usual with studying Scripture, the author's argument that context is key is crucial for a biblical perspective. He reminds us that baptism has different meanings in different places, and he encourages us to investigate who is doing the baptizing and what the meaning in that particular text is. Baptism of the Spirit, he challenges, is essential, and it has nothing to do with getting wet. Water baptism, in his analysis, is an act of subsequent, loving obedience and testimony before men.

The text has the tone of a topical teaching, and this is neither good nor bad. Ringing phrases are absent, but perhaps the author is conscious of a desire not to get in the way of the wonder of his subject.

Concise and Scriptural

Brings clarity to a confusing topic. God is not the author of confusion.

I like how the various theories were presented and given space for examination. The author is presenting truth in what seems to be a humble, sincere spirit.

Sometimes doctrinal booklets are purposefully critical of other positions. But this just puts the Scripture out there for consideration with a little highlighting and connecting of the dots to see the plain truth available to all.

You know something is right when it is simple.

I want to express gratitude to the author for exerting the effort and prayer time necessary to properly arrange this helpful information.

Good Read

Excellent Guide

This book provides an excellent study of an often confusing subject. Before I read it, I knew virtually nothing about the subject. Now, I feel that I'm much better prepared to discuss baptisms with others.

The thing I liked the most was the 4-Question test, and summary at the end. This will make it easy to go back and quickly review the book's basic tenets. Well done!

A Biblical Look at Baptism(s)

Bible Study is a lost art in many of today's Churches. Baptism in and of itself is a very confusing topic. You can go to several churches and get completely different views on this topic.

But, what does the Bible really say about baptism?

I for one, had no idea that there were so many different types of baptisms that were discussed in the Bible.

This book teaches you without 'spoon feeding' all of the answers. It teaches you how to ask four critical questions to glean from the text for yourself.

This book will help you put into practice the example in Acts 17:11 - to receive the Word with eagerness and to search the Scriptures to see if these things are true.

I highly recommend this book for any serious student of the Bible, or those Christians who really feel confused about the various teachings on baptism.

This book will really help clarify things for you!

A clarification sorely needed

Robert Dallman has provided a great service to any Christian who reads this book.

The many types of Baptisms that are mentioned in the Bible can often be confusing, but he provides a method of determining whether or not water is involved with a very easy to remember formula.

This book is not a deep scholarly tome, but rather an easy read for any Christian who seeks clarity about baptism. I recommend it without reservation.

EXCELLENT Study of Baptisms

I really enjoyed this books for the following reasons:

1. The author does not force his opinion on me - he simply shows the scripture and then asks logical questions allowing scripture and the Holy Spirit to reveal the answer.

2. I like the no frills approach that Bob Dallmann takes in his studies. I have read several of his books now and I appreciate his extremely thorough content yet with no "mental gymnastics".

3. I like that I can use this book for a personal study or I can use it in a small group or Sunday School setting.

4. I was floored at how little I really knew about baptism and how unclear I was on what I thought I knew. I now have a 4 question test that I can apply anytime I see the word "baptism" in scripture.

5. I like the fact that I can read this on my Kindle or tablet - and I hope it comes out in paperback as well so I can gift it.

I HIGHLY recommend this book for any believer - at any level of maturity and at any level of knowledge of scripture.

A Great Exploration (of baptism)

I found this book very interesting. I was aware of a variety of baptisms mentioned in the Bible; however, I discovered several additional baptisms.

I really like this book for several reasons: It is a discussion based directly on verses from the Bible--all in the context they were written, it is formatted well in order to deal with one topic at a time, and it is concise--there is not a bunch of fluff or personal ideas not based in Scripture.

This is a great book to help you explore the topic of baptism from a Biblical perspective.

'Heavyweight' in its Theological Content

As a baptized believer, I have read several books over the years on baptism, and I think this helpful book stands shoulder to shoulder with all of them. But I'd go further: this book takes a real panoramic view of the whole subject of baptism and finds many links that I had missed before.

In his 16 chapters Dallmann covers specifically about 10 different categories of baptism found in the bible. The remaining chapters introduce and link the themes as well as providing summary conclusions and a helpful quick reference biblical chart. Chapter 3 provides four simple questions we need to keep in mind as we explore the subject of baptism across the whole sweep of the Bible: who is doing the baptising, who is being baptised, into what are they being baptized and what is the purpose of this baptism. The answers are sometimes surprising, always illuminating. Dallmann does not do all the work for his readers. Whilst he always provides helpful pointers, he often leaves them to reach their own conclusions.

This is a short book but 'heavyweight' in its theological content. And yet its a straightforward read and helpful to Believers at whatever stage they have reached in their Christian journey. I highly recommend this book.

About This Book
Why should you get a copy of this book?
There is so much confusion about the various baptisms mentioned in the New Testament.  Many Christians think that every time they see the word “baptism” that water is involved.
  • Did you know that there are eight or more “baptisms” mentioned in the New Testament?
  • Did you know that not all of the baptisms noted in the Bible are for believers?
  • Did you know that there are two (possibly four) baptisms that actually involved water, and only one of those should be practiced by Christians?
This book is an effort to help bring clarity to the various baptisms mentioned and taught in the Bible.  If one does not understand which baptism they are speaking about, misunderstanding and erroneous interpretations are likely to follow.
