Everett Ferguson is my homeboy...

...and he has a new book coming out about Baptism!

He's one of the world's leading experts on the early church, and he's got a new book out detailing the "History, Theology, and Liturgy" of baptism in the first five centuries. I love everything this guy writes, because he is so incredibly thorough, yet readable. It is sad to see great scholars getting older, but on the bright side, he's using his extra time available outside of the classroom to do more writing.

I've never bought a book from Ferguson that wasn't worth every penny. I can't wait to read it when it comes out!

You can pre-order it at Amazon:


  1. I will certainly be purchasing that.

    Thanks for alerting us, Mark
