Review: The End of the Law by Jason Meyer

The End of the LawWhat does the Christian have to do with the law of Moses? This is an issue that has divided Christians throughout the ages with very different conclusions being drawn, all from honest study of Scripture.

Most of these don’t have to be answered immediately, but this is not so for the question of baptism. Should we follow the practice of many Christians in the past (and present) and baptise her as an infant, since she is a child of new covenant members? Or should we wait until she has professed faith? Being raised in the Calvary Chapel movement, I have always held to believer’s baptism, but had I truly considered the alternative view? Not only that, but why do I hold to believer’s baptism?

You can imagine my surprise at seeing a rather large box with all these unexpected books inside!
