50x52: Baptsm- Three Views

From a cycling to a theology book, my head is hurting from the big words, but this is a great and challenging read for pastors. Three views are laid out by three experts in their fields: David Wright, Bruce Ware, Sinclair Ferguson, and Anthony Lane. The book takes on a debate format of argument, response and final rebuttal.
The three views "Believer Baptism" (credobaptism), "Infant Baptism" (paedobaptism) and "Dual Practice" (middle-lane). Like any Goldilocks extremes, finding the middle position "just right" is the temptation, but for those of us from an evangelical and infant baptism background the debate here is very strong and may leave you considering the Biblical warrants for our practice.
