Dyer asserts that baptism i. n outward picture or symbol of what God has done in the life of the believer through . It is easy to read, well organized, and thorough. It is also an excellent resource for any new believer seeking to understand more about baptism. n outward picture or symbol of what God has done in the life of the believer through faith (p. 22). The author also records several passages that indicate that faith in Christ is the sole means of obtaining eternal life (pp. 82-86). He also briefly, but effectively, addresses a few passages which have mistakenly been thought to teach water baptism as a requirement for salvation (pp. 72-78).

Larry e. dyer quotes. Five types of baptism are mentioned in the New Testament, though only two of the five have to do with water. LARRY E. DYER, Baptism: The Believer's First Obedience. No wonder people become confused.

Dyer's book on baptism is a good book, if you hold that baptism is a mere ceremony in the life of the believer. Dr. Dyer has done the church a service by publishing this fine little volume on baptism. I found the book to be simple to read and Dr. Dyer deals with the mode, subjects, and purpose of baptism quite well.

Comments to eBook Baptism: The Believer's First Obedience
Dobpota
Books on infant baptism are common. Ones on the baptism of believers by immersion are harder to find. Dyer's book falls into the latter category. Those who have serious questions about what the Bible has to say about baptism will value Dyer's helpful book. Without becoming excessively technical, Dyer, a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary, answers common questions about baptism in sufficient depth to satisfy most readers. He tackles different uses of the word "baptism" in the Bible, answers common objections to baptism, and has helpful and practical hints to offer those participating in a baptism. Readers will appreciate his willingness to discuss opposing views and to analyze some of the harder verses in the Bible that are related to the subject.

Excellent book, brief, concise and full of information for reflection on what is at stake as you prepare for baptism as well as with great practical tips, such as what to wear on the day. Highly recommend!

Dr. Dyer has done the church a service by publishing this fine little volume on baptism. He explains, in simple language, what baptism means and why the believer should be baptized. Along the way, he explains the mode of baptism and some helpful hints for both the one being baptized and the baptizer. This is an excellent book to hand to candidates for baptism to explain clearly this important doctrine.
For the more technical minded, the author deals with a number of issues that have divided the church:
1. He defends the immersion mode of baptism.
2. He rejects infant baptism, promoting only believer's baptism
3. He explains the true meaning of the major passages used to support baptismal regeneration.
My only disagreement with Dyer would be in his understanding of modern day Lutheran theology being in opposition with Martin Luther's view (p.33). Unfortunately, Luther, who did teach that salvation was on the basis of grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone, never broke from infant baptism as a component of salvation. The contradiction lies with Luther himself, who believed so strongly in sola fide while still subscribing to baptismal regeneration (see Luther's Shorter Catechism), not with Luther and Lutheran theology.
Baptism, the Believer's First Obedience is an excellent tool that I will use on a regular basis with those interested in baptism.

Dr. Dyer's book on baptism is a good book, if you hold that baptism is a mere ceremony in the life of the believer. I found the book to be simple to read and Dr. Dyer deals with the mode, subjects, and purpose of baptism quite well.
My only problems with this book was Dr. Dyer's insistence that while baptism should be the believers first act of obedience to Christ, he never tells us why. He defends believers' baptism but then attacks baptismal regeneration by insisting that a believer need not be baptized to be saved yet if they truly are saved, writes Dyer, then they will be baptized. This is confusing to me since the NT knows nothing of an unbaptized Christian, which Dyer would agree with, but then he claims you can still be a Christian without baptism.
I do recommend this book but I do also recommend that you read this with your Bible open and ready to test all things by the inspired Scriptures (1 Thess. 5:21).

To the review that said the Bible makes no mention of believer's who are NOT baptized, if I may enlighten you as I was previously enlightened. There is a case in the Bible where a believer is NOT baptized but is still saved. Where, you might ask?
Read the crucifixion story again and you will find that there is a man on the cross next to Jesus who is saved -- Jesus said, "you shall be with me in paradise today". Now then, how was it possible for him to be baptized as a believer if he was on a cross, dying in his last hour? Either Jesus was pulling his leg when he told him they'd be in paradise together or this is an example of someone who was a true believer but did not participate in the ordinance of baptism. I tend to side with the latter.

Dr. Dyer has written a very helpful book on baptism. The book is extremely clear and informative. It addresses the practical issues concerning baptism today answering the questions of "what, why, and how." This book is very easy to read and is grounded in the Word of God. I highly recommend this book.
