Christic Baptism and Patristic Baptism: An Inquiry into the Meaning of the Word as Determined by the Usage of the Holy Scriptures and Patristic Writings
- James W. Dale
An inquiry into the meaning of 'baptizo' in the holy Scriptures and patristic writings.
In the 19th century, Dr. James W. Dale, a Presbyterian minister, embarked on a scholarly project that proved to be the most exhaustive study ever undertaken on the word 'baptism.' Aiming at a contextual understanding of the work, Dr. Dale meticulously examined its use in a wide range of historical documents, and his analysis is a masterpiece of lexicographical scholarship.
Dr. Dale published his findings in four volumes, and for the first time in many years all four of these distinguished texts are available, offering a valuable resource for students and scholars of language, religion, and history.
