The Christian church confesses “one baptism.” But the church’s answers to how, whom and when to baptize, and even what it means or does, are famously varied. This book provides a forum for thoughtful proponents of three principal evangelical views to state their case, respond to the others, and then provide a summary response and statement. Sinclair Ferguson sets out the case for infant baptism, Bruce Ware presents the case for believers’ baptism, and Anthony Lane argues for a mixed practice.
As with any good conversation on a controversial topic, this book raises critical issues, challenges preconceptions and discloses the soft points in each view. Evangelicals who wish to understand better their own church’s practice or that of their neighbor, or who perhaps are uncertain of their own views, will value this incisive book.
“Sarah and Beth are an absolute gift to our culture right now. Not only do they offer balanced perspectives from each political ideology, but they teach us how to dialogue well, without sacrificing our humanity.”
—Jen Hatmaker, New York Times bestselling author, speaker, and founder of Legacy Collective
“Sarah from the left and Beth from the right serve as our guides through conflict and complexity, delivering us into connection. I wish every person living in the United States would read this compelling book, from the youngest voter to those holding the highest office.”
—Emily P. Freeman, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of Simply Tuesday and The Next Right Thing
More than ever, politics seems driven by conflict and anger. People sitting together in pews every Sunday have started to feel like strangers, loved ones at the dinner table like enemies. Toxic political dialogue, hate-filled rants on social media, and agenda-driven news stories have become the new norm. It’s exhausting, and it’s too much.

Are evangelicals focusing on the true worship of Christ and his message through the Holy Spirit or are they politicizing Christianity?
In this sober and well-reasoned examination of the American Evangelical movement’s shift toward partisan politics, Michael Antonacci calls us to stop the politicization of Christianity.
Calling upon his own life experiences, he examines how the current generation of evangelical leaders have harmed the true church by their partisan political endorsements. This has contributed to a dilution of Christ’s messages and a growing exodus of the younger generation from the church.
Michael Antonacci challenges stereotypes around evangelical Christians and gives new leaders suggestions on how to pivot away from politicized Christianity.
According to Mr. Antonacci, the church’s spiritual message of love and forgiveness and the power of the Holy Spirit and Jesus should be paramount. While evangelicals do have to sometimes speak on political matters, he advises that instead of siding only with one political party and being known as the Religious Right, we need to be known as Christian Independents.
“God’s work is higher than partisan politics,” Mr. Antonacci reminds us. “My prayers and hope are that the Next Generation of Evangelical Leaders will first be spirit-led. That they will keep politics at a distance and not be used by anyone except Jesus Christ.”
