This is a gracious, courteous and scriptural exposition of the subject of believer's baptism, written by the Particular Baptist pastor, John Norcott, in the mid-1600s. He had been driven to Holland by persecution. He was the second pastor of the church which met in Old Gravel Lane, Wapping, London. His funeral sermon was preached by Benjamin Keach, no less.
This edition is based on the one edited by C.H. Spurgeon in 1885, which was highly recommended by J.K. Popham in the February 1912 Gospel Standard magazine. A short account of Norcott taken from Ivimey's History of the English Baptists was added. Some modernisation of verb forms has been carried out to make it more readable.
