Baptisms - There is so much confusion about the various baptisms in the Bible. Many think that every time they see the word “baptism” that water is involved.

* Did you know that there are 8 to 10 “baptisms” mentioned in the Bible?

* Did you know that only 2 of these baptisms mention water?

* Did you know that about half of these baptisms may be for Christians?

In this book, Robert Dallmann presents the subject of baptisms as they appear in the Bible. Before reading "Baptisms-One? Many? Or Both?" I must admit that I did not give much thought to baptisms and how they differ. I certainly knew and read about baptisms in the Bible, but really didn't focus on the subject in depth. This very informative study has changed that. I now have a better understanding of the subject.

In the beginning of this book, the reader is presented with four questions to ask

One thing is clear as you read this book, the author's number one desire is to equip the saints. He digs deep into the word of God and takes us, the readers, with him. This book is great for a group or an individual study with precise lessons and follow-up questions. A valuable tool that Robert Dallmann stresses is the importance of context when it comes to scripture. He tackles head-on controversial topics as well as educating the different references to Baptism, such as John's Baptism, the Bel ...more

This book was a gift from the author, both in the literal sense that he loaned it to me so that I could review it and because it was used of God to remind me of His ever renewing power.

As usual with studying Scripture, the author's argument that context is key is crucial for a biblical perspective. He reminds us that baptism has different meanings in different places, and he encourages us to investigate who is doing the baptizing and what the meaning in that particular text is. Baptism of the Sp

The handout was very helpful as it details the various baptism's with their scripture verses in support.

Baptisms: One, Many, or Both? is more of a brief topical study than an actual book. In sixty pages Robert Dallmann catalogs nine specific occasions where variations of the terms baptize and baptism appear in the English New Testament without employing the original language. This is not, and does not purport to be a scholarly work, so it would be wrong to critique it on that basis. Conclusions are based on a modern understanding of terms from a self-initiated four question test, as opposed to con ...more

I received this book through a Goodreads giveaway. Rebaptism is a subject in which I have been interested for a long time. I know there are many different opinions on baptism and on types of baptism. I found Dallmann's book interesting and informative. It was full of examples that really made me think.

This is an excellent source for differentiating the term baptism throughout the Bible. I will be referring to it when I have yet another hungry soul wanting to get closer to God through water baptism & ultimately through the baptism of the Holy Spirit. ...more

This is a great book on the different baptisms in the New Testament of the Bible. If you didn’t realize there were different baptisms, then this book is for you. If you always thought, baptism was only to do with water, then this book is for you. It’s a great study tool. I learned so much, because I knew about water baptism and the baptism of the Holy Ghost, but was confused on the others. This book helped me to study with a “Four Question Test” you apply as you’re studying and it will help you ...more

Before I read this book, I thought the baptisms mentioned in the Bible were easily identified. Dallman did a fine job of identifying the baptisms and applied a simple four question rule to understand the baptisms. Dallmann left out a small detail in the book of Acts where believer’s baptism in water was “in the Name of Jesus”, versus the “Father, Son, and Holy Ghost” of Matthew 28:19. One denomination, the Assemblies of the Lord Jesus Christ, believe the believer’s baptism in water, should be vo ...more

The subject of "baptisms" can be a very emotion driven topic. There is so much controversy and confusion that the subject is often avoided.

While writing about the baptisms found in the Bible, I have attempted to take the approach of holding to ONLY and EXACTLY what the Scriptures say.

This book, "Baptisms - One? Many? Or Both?" is designed to provide easy-to-use tools to help identify and differentiate one Biblical baptism from another. Once baptisms have been identified, then the studyin

Robert (Bob) Dallmann was born in a small town in upstate New York, and lived a bit of a "wild life" until late 1983. In December of 1983, Bob repented of his sinful ways, and accepted Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection for him. Since that time, Bob has sought to live a fully devoted Christ-glorifying life. The following is a list of some of the things that have helped create Bob's writing sty ...more
