Arthur, W. – Tongue of Fire

Tongue of Fire is 6 chapters on the baptism of the Holy Spirit, referring principally to the work at Pentecost. Speaking in tongues is addressed as an effect of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. But boldness in witnessing is the effect. Obviously the tongues they spoke in were known languages, as Acts 2 elaborates.

Gill Proper Mode of Baptism

Gill Proper Mode of Baptism is a short four chapter work by John Gill on the mode of baptism. He first examines the biblical injunction to baptize, then refutes a Welsh Clergyman’s arguments in favor of infant baptism, and then attacks the Catholic background to this practice. I have added a personal study of mine, The Error of Infant Baptism.

Version 2 has reformatted the entire module and added the final chapter by David Cox (The Error of Infant Baptism). Note that this module is now under copyright and cannot be reformatted, format shifted, nor reposted by anybody except David Cox.

Baier, J. – Compendium of Positive Theology

The Baier/Walther Compendium of Positive Theology served as the systematic theology textbook for the first few generations of Lutheran Church — Missouri Synod pastors. Written in Latin, it is a revised edition of a classic work by the Seventeenth Century Lutheran dogmatian Johannes Baier. This edition contains an english translation of the theses at the head of each chapter. Later editions will offer the full text of the work.
