Baptism: A reading (blogs) primer

For some time I’ve been meaning to write a series on baptism, working through the biblical texts and outlining why I’m a credo-baptist (baptism of believers) and engaging with the opposite view (paedobaptism).

With that in mind I’ve been collecting various blog posts on both sides of the debate (which I’ll update as new relevant posts come along). You can find my bibliography on baptism here.
