This was a great book in learning what the bible teaches about baptism. It was a bit technical in places but for the most part not to bad of a read. It was helpful in understanding what the differences where between paedobaptist covenant theologians and credobaptist covenant theologians. It was actually a decent introduction into covenant theology. It was helpful in understanding the regulative principle of worship also. He starts by allowing John Murray to speak for himself about baptism so as to prevent forming a straw man. Malone then helps us understand a biblical hermeneutic and how the paedobaptist is inconsistent with his hermeneutic. Malone explains the paedobaptist don’t have specific verses they point out necessarily to support infant baptism but rather have a “string of pearls” and teaching and inferences they make when strung together allow them to form the doctrine of infant baptism. Malone takes each pearl of the necklace and refutes it leaving the paedobaptist in my opinion with nothing to hold on to and only to turn to biblical baptism of disciples alone. I was impressed by the book and am currently working through the appendixes. I would recommend this to all who are serious about understanding what the bible teaches about baptism, but especially to those who agree with many paedobaptist on their soteriology and may be considering their ecclesiology as well. Malone was a Baptist, to a Presbyterian, and back to a Baptist so reading his story at the beginning of the book will be of interest to many as well.- Kenneth Clayton
