The Lord Jesus left two ordinances to be observed by His disciples: Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
There is much confusion about the meaning of baptism and about how and when an individual should be baptized. This comprehensive and clear study by A. P. Gibbs takes us back to the Bible to help us understand the true significance of baptism and answer the many questions that surround this subject.
A detailed Table of Contents will aid the reader to view the subject as a whole, and also enable him to turn to any part of the subject in which he is particularly interested.
Alfred P. Gibbs (1890-1967) was a man born to preach. Brought up with his twin brother Edwin in South Africa, both boys early came to know, love, and serve the Lord Jesus Christ. Edwin (1890-1968) stayed on in South Africa to pursue a fruitful evangelistic and Bible teaching work. Alfred studied at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago and thereafter carried on an itinerant Bible teaching and writing ministry, chiefly in the United States and Canada. Gibbs published his first book,The Marvelous City of Mansoul in 1926. In all he wrote fourteen books and booklets, including Christian Baptism, The Lord’s Supper, Scriptural Principles of Gathering, and Worship. All his books have intensity like the man who wrote them. He was full of his subject. He also composed poetry and wrote Christian hymns. Gibbs never married, considering himself a eunuch for the kingdom of God. He was a model of the advice he gave, he was a spiritual man and a practical man, and fun to be with besides. For Gibbs, to hold forth the Word of life was a lifetime passion.

Here's What People Are Saying!"By far the most thorough treatise on baptism since Johannes Warns' exhaustive study, the book begins by describing the different baptisms of the New testament. After dealing at length with the meaning of and the authority for baptism, and the persons eligible for baptism, and the mode of baptism, the author devoted more than 100 pages to considering the differing views on baptism. These include the views of those who believe in infant baptism, of The Reformation, of Roman Catholics, Greek Orthodox, Lutherans, Episcopalians, of those who ignore the necessity for baptism, as the Quakers and the Salvation Army, and of those who oppose all forms of baptism. Then he goes on to deal with those who teach and practice baptism on behalf of the dead, those who teach and practice household baptism, and various other views and practices concerning baptism.

I call her my Resplendent Bride because I have eyes and ears and for a time she even let me hold her hand.
Yet although her time among us was cut short by cancer, I still feel the afterglow of her resplendence. We were married less than three years. I buried my heart and my wedding ring in St. Louis.
We walked through the shadowlands hand-in-hand until she drew her final breath. She suffered gracefully in a world that does not know what to do with pain.
The Christian faith has always been about death and resurrection, for those twin truths were the reason the Lord Jesus sojourned among us. We have forgotten the old way—we have forgotten how to suffer and die well.
Danielle was my Resplendent Bride, and the church is Christ’s. I invite you to walk through this broken house so that you may know our small part in the divine love story.
As King David said in Psalm 27:13, “. . . I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living!” and if not, I know the resurrection fast approaches.
Come, won’t you sit amongst the graves with me, and dream of Resurrection Day?
