"In "Paul on Baptism", Nicholas Taylor applies his expertise as a New Testament scholar to a pressing issue in ecclesial ministry. As a contribution to practical theology, [this book] will benefit readers concerned with the intersection of theology, mission, and ministry in their local contexts. Highly recommended."
(Bruce Longenecker, Baylor University, USA)
"This book is a brilliant example of the best scholarship offered at the service of the church. Anyone who wants to think deeply about their own theology of baptism, inspired by the Pauline texts, will find this an invaluable source of lucid and thoughtful insight. I highly recommend it."
(Paula Gooder, Theologian in Residence, Bible Society)
Conscious of the pastoral challenges facing contemporary Churches across the world, and drawing on his own experience in different parts of the globe, Nicholas Taylor brings the latest scholarship to present St. Paul’s understanding of baptism and how this can be applied to the current problems of Christian Initiation. This is an important study for clergy looking for some biblical and theological guidance for their baptismal practice.
