This is the one book on baptism that you must read. It was seven years in the making. The author believes that until a new approach is taken, separations over the meaning, mode, and recipients of baptism will never be bridged. This new approach traces the roots of baptism deep into the OT Scriptures. When understood properly, we discover that baptism is always the sign that God has used to initiate his people into a new creation. Baptism in the NT is not “new.” Rather, it derives its origin from OT predecessors. When we understand that baptism comes from baptism, especially in its sacramental expression in the priestly covenant, reasons for the NT practice begin to make perfect sense. Now Baptists have an argument that infant Baptists can finally understand, because we are beginning our argument in the same place.

    If you like Biblical Theology, this is a must read. Whether you agree with the premise or not, you will be challenged to ponder the redemptive-historical significance of Christian Baptism. This work will also challenge you to rethink your understanding of the relationship of the OT covenants with the New Covenant and its sacraments. As Mr. VanDorn discusses the issue of believer's baptism vs. paedobaptism, he goes about it in such a way so as to eliminate the primary historical point of contension between Reformed Baptists and Reformed & Presbyterians which is a different understanding of how the OT covenants relate to the New Covenant. Mr. VanDorn presents an argument in favor of believer's baptism by re-examining a "more-presbyterian-than-baptist" view of covenant theology. Perhaps ideas such as this may be able to bring reformed paedobaptists and reformed baptists back to the discussion table to reexamine our understanding of the sacrament of baptism.
