Baptism of Grace (Paperback)
"In the 36 years I have followed Christ, this book more than any other has challenged me to confirm that what I believe lines up with Scripture. Through his focus on baptism, Mark David Cooper illustrates just how quickly we can start thinking that we need to contribute something to our salvation. It is a must-read for anyone who has struggled with the power of Christ's death and resurrection, the significance of baptism, or the mystery of grace."

Baptism: is it from men or from Heaven?
This is the same question Jesus asked the Pharisees in Matthew 21:25 and the same question we must answer today.
This is a book for the committed follower of Christ and not the casual inquirer. It is an examination into the comprehensive truth of what the Bible teaches regarding God's administration of baptism upon His people.
Mark David Cooper performs a deep analysis of God instilling His grace on His followers through a fivefold baptism: living water, the Trinity, the Holy Spirit, fire, and Christ's blood. He challenges the reader to move past common, elementary understandings and grasp the mature, biblical concept of one gracious (fivefold) baptism from God.
After reading this book, the reader will appreciate the impact of what God does for us through His lavish grace.
