Summary Placing aside the foreword and introduction, there are ten chapters or sections to this book. Divided into sections, the first four chapters present the argument that believer’s baptism is based upon the New Testament. Chapter One is more of an essay written by Andreas Kostenberger. Kostenberger places emphasis upon three important baptismals: John the Baptist, Jesus, and the figurative baptisms of the disciples. After presenting the Gospel of Mark’s account of the baptisms performed by John the Baptist, he writes, “The underlying symbolism of the Baptism’s baptism is that of cleansing from sin and of spiritual renewal.” Water baptism then is prior to spiritual renewal or at least accompanies it.
