Difficulties About Baptism

This handbook written by Douglas Bannerman, M.A., D.D., was published originally by The Free Church of Scotland in 1898. D. Douglas Bannerman is primarily known to us by his excellent two volume work, The Scripture Doctrine of the Church. Bannerman, a Scottish Presbyterian (January 29, 1842-1903) was the son of James Bannerman and, like his father, a minister in the Free Church of Scotland. The mode and subjects of Baptism are living issues. It is obvious, therefore, that Christian people should be aware of what the Scriptures can teach us about this Sacrament, and of the nature and history of the controversies which have arisen concerning it.
