In this new book (my third), I have sought to share with the reader my own journey of discovery with respect to the doctrine and practice of baptism. I confess that my views have changed dramatically over the years as I have studied God's Word on this key act of faith that is a central tenet of Christendom. My understandings as I began this spiritual journey are not entirely my convictions today, which has led some to wonder how I arrived at my present perceptions. This book is the answer to that often asked question. To those who are willing to have their convictions challenged and to reflect upon them with eyes focused on God's grace, and who are not afraid of change, I humbly submit this record of one disciple's reflective journey of discovery.

Dr. Barry Perryman, an author and university professor, who wrote the Foreword for this new book, declared: "Al Maxey has honestly offered a progression of his thoughts on baptism that have been formed, revised, and expanded over the last decade. This work is a shining example of a disciple of Christ who openly, honestly, and bravely reviews what he believes and is convicted about. He is not afraid to ask himself if he has embraced error. He does not study the Scriptures to reinforce what he has already become comfortable with. Seldom do we have a written record that chronologically records one's progression of thought on a single subject that is so core to Christendom. To Al's credit, the scholarship within the individual chapters of this book is impeccable. And so I charge you the reader: Do not be fearful as you read and study this work, but rather be thoughtful, be honest, pray for understanding, and endeavor to know the freedom found in Christ Jesus."
