      The United Methodist Book of Worship contains "An Order of Thanksgiving for the Birth or Adoption of a Child" (pages ), which may be recommended in situations where baptism is inappropriate, but parents wish to take responsibility publicly for the growth of the child in faith. I really like this book! It is arguably the best book on baptism (except my Baptism: A Biblical Study, of course!) since George R. Beasley-Murray’s Baptism in the New Testament appeared in The book is called Recovering the Evangelical Sacrament: Baptisma Semper Reformandum (Eugene, OR: Pickwick Publications, ; p., pb.), written by Anthony R. Cross.

    But in first-century Judaism, baptism had a different meaning. In the book of Leviticus, God instructs Jews to cleanse themselves from ritual impurities, contracted through such acts as touching a. The English word baptism is derived indirectly through Latin from the neuter Greek concept noun baptisma (Greek βάπτισμα, "washing-ism"), which is a neologism in the New Testament derived from the masculine Greek noun baptismos (βαπτισμός), a term for ritual washing in Greek language texts of Hellenistic Judaism during the Second Temple period, such as the Septuagint.

      This book is a helpful, brief, easy-to-read definition of baptism. Sproul looks at the whole of Scripture (showing the continuity between the old covenant and the new covenant) and explains what a sacrament is, and specifically what the sacrament of baptism is/5. This unique book offers a concise, yet far-reaching, account of the history of baptism from a wide variety of times throughout church history and places all over the world. William Cathcart recounts significant ancient, medieval, and modern baptisms of and by notable figures from Ireland, England, France, Germany, Switzerland, Russia, Egypt.
