Description

In the United States of America, where Baptist theology is the default for Christianity, Martin Luther’s teaching on Baptism stands out.  His views of Baptism, which assert that Baptism imparts and guarantees salvation, even in infants, seem radical in today’s context. But this perspective places all the work of salvation in Christ, not in humans.

This work compiles Luther’s preaching on Baptism in Wittenberg from 1525 to 1539.  Half of the volume
Is newly translated for the first time in this book.  A new introduction and study notes, and the omission of technical footnotes, set this edition apart.
