Taking The Plunge – Baptism and belonging to Jesus

A fantastic new book is now available for people who are considering baptism. The book is designed to be a resource that churches can have on stock to give to people considering baptism or even the Christian faith. It is written by Andrew Turner, who works in church consultancy for the Baptist Churches of South Australia. Andrew has a very approachable style and a knack for explaining complex constructs in easy to understand analogies and a humorous writing style. This isn’t a stuffy theological tome on the doctrine of baptism but rather a tool to help people understand the significance of baptism and the ongoing consequences for our lives thereafter, hence the byline ‘and belonging to Jesus’. The chapters are constructed as follows:
