    1. If you haven't studied this issue you will probably like this book as the authors provide succinct overviews of what is really quite a detailed subject requiring laborious study to master. If you feel that you are fairly well-read on this subject then you may not profit (that much) from this book. The two I'm most concerned with (for my purposes) are Nettles' and Pratt's chapters, so I'll briefly comment. Nettles' chapter doesn't deal with any of the difficult objections that I think should be o [...]


    2. This book is exactly what the title says that it is. Four theologians from four branches of Christianity write essays outlining what they believe about baptism, then critique each other's essays. I did not learn a lot about baptism, but I did learn about how preconceptions change how we hear what other people say.I enjoyed the book and will read it again. I will recommend it to a few, but it will not suit most people.


    3. This book has strengthened my position on believer's baptism and caused me to think more deeply on how important to treat the mode of baptism. If we can deviate from the NT church practice of Lord's Supper (one church & one loaf) are we free to deviate from the NT church mode of baptism?


    4. It was in many ways your run-of-the-mill "(Number of) Views on (a doctrine)" books. It's okay, and more useful than not reading it, but it doesn't go very in-depth, nor are the arguments as strong as they could be.It presented the following four views of baptism:Thomas Nettles - Baptist View (Believers baptism only, baptism is not regenerative)Richard L. Pratt, Jr. - Reformed View (Infant baptism, baptism is not regenerative)Robert Kolb - Lutheran View (Infant baptism, baptism is regenerative)Jo [...]


    5. I was impressed by the way the four authors (a Baptist, a Reformed theologian, a Lutheran, and a representative of the Christian Church / Churches of Christ) highlight the ways they disagree with each other while writing with respect and love.I was most interested with John Castelein's defense of the perspective of the Christian Church / Churches of Christ (my own heritage). I thought it was one of the best defenses I've read (up there with John Mark Hicks in Down in the River to Pray and Jack C [...]


    6. Interesting to see the difference of opinions and interpretations of various scriptures. If you can set aside your own bias you can see that each of the authors make some good arguments. And while their argument may be good they each show how to have a discussion while maintaining their own beliefs. Each bring up interesting things to consider. A good read to learn the different positions held on baptism and counter arguments to each position.


    7. Pratt has some helpful things to say but the book _the Case for Covenantal Infant Baptism_ would serve better than this, even for all the point or counter point issues or even Booth's _Children of the Promise_ Boo overall and boo for the debate still being cycled and turned into an issue of "profit" and "sport".


    8. Helpful, but this volume does not sparkle as much as others in the series. Additionally, while the book includes Baptist, Church of Christ/Christian Church, Reformed, and Lutheran viewpoints, it does not include a Catholic/Orthodox viewpoint. Since several of the contributors seem to be reacting to what they perceive as the Catholic viewpoint, that absence is problematic.


    9. So helpful to hear views from people that believe them and can passionate, logical defenses. The Counterpoints series (and those like it from other publishers) are great resources that every pastor and church library should have.


    10. The counterpoints books are always good reads. This one was no different. Why only three stars? I didn't think a couple of the views were defended very well. More depth and clarity would have been nice.


    11. This book fairly and ably represents the views of baptism from the Lutheran, Reformed, Baptist, and Christian Church traditions. However, I really would love to see a book like this that would be accessible by lay people. It was difficult for me to follow and I've got an M.Div.!


    12. One of two books I read on the subject of Baptism. Check in my Library for Baptism: Three Views as the other one.
