Excerpt from A Concise View of the Ordinance of BaptismIn the early part of his ministry the Author published "A Concise View of the Doctrine of Scripture concerning the Ordinance of Baptism." That small work has for many years been out of print: and though repeatedly urged to prepare a new edition, he considered it unnecessary, in consequence of the number of excellent and able treatises which have appeared upon the same subject. But in a late series of discourses, he preached two intended to explain this ordinance; and afterwards a proposal was made for printing them, which he could not satisfactorily decline. Instead, however, of sending them to press as "Sermons," he has thrown the substance of them into a form more appropriate for reading, at the same time extending the illustration a little, occasionally, as appeared desirable.He has studied brevity as much as possible, consistently with clearness and completeness of statement, for putting the reader in possession of his views. Though obliged in some parts to protest against antichristianism, and to oppose the sentiments of many whom he regards as brethren in Christ, he is not conscious of having penned a word violating the "charity which is the bond of perfectness." He cannot suppose that a frank Christian avowal of opinions, held conscientiously and deemed important, will ever be taken as offensive by the followers of Christ. Lovers of truth have nothing to fear from free inquiry; and of calm and candid sifting investigations upon religious subjects, no Protestant ought ever to complain.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
