Authors Of Baptism Book Have Book Signing Oct. 19 At Silverdale Cumberland Presbyterian

Tuesday, October 09, 2012

Authors Rev. Justin Griffin and Rev. Phillip Layne will have a book signing event on Oct. 19, from 4-7 p.m. at Silverdale Cumberland Presbyterian Church, 7407 Bonny Oaks Dr, Chattanooga, Tn. 37421. Mr. Griffin and Mr. Layne, residents of Norris City, Il., will be available to sign copies of their book, Baptism: Truths and Misinformation.

Pastor and theologian Justin Griffin has intensely studied the issue of baptism from a Reformed perspective.  As in his other book, The Truth about Images of Jesus and the Second Commandment, Mr. Griffin wants Christians to know why they do what they do.
 
Organizers said, "In Baptism: Truths and Misinformation, Mr. Griffin and Mr. Layne clarify a variety of common misconceptions about baptism, but they also want to express how important—paramount!—it is to examine the Scripture against itself, not someone's opinion. Above anyone else's teaching or voice, God's Word should speak for itself, and the wise, humble, and hopeful Christian will never stray off course as long as he checks his work against the ultimate answer key."
