The Publishing Story: Baptism

College Press came to us with the book Baptism: A Biblical Study by Jack Cottrell, which is one of their 11 top-sellers that they wanted us to redo. They wanted a new cover and interior for a great refresh.

Specific Services We Provided

We helped with:

  • Project management
  • Interior design and typesetting
  • Cover design
  • eBooks

We created a beautiful book, and we were happy with how the cover turned out. It looks specific and striking, which can be difficult to do when depicting a theological sacrament. Our design team did a great job, and we were really happy with how it turned out, as was the College Press team.

Baptism was republished August 10, 2023.

We appreciate Angela Blethen’s kind endorsement: “They have responded well to feedback as we work together to create an end product that we are happy with.”

More About the Book

From the back cover.


The water of baptism which God meant to unite us has become the water that divides us. But the topic of baptism does not have to divide us—it can be one of the Bible doctrines that submerges us in a common relationship with our Lord Jesus.

Scripture is far from silent on the subject of baptism, yet history is strewn with such a variety of perspectives that it becomes difficult to gain a clear view of what the Bible itself actually has to say.

In thirteen chapters, Dr. Cottrell discusses twelve major texts on baptism in the New Testament by examining the meaning of the original words, the historical background, and the comparative references.

The texts covered:

  • Matthew 28:18-20
  • Mark 16:15-16
  • John 3:3-5
  • Acts 2:38-39
  • Acts 22:16
  • Romans 6:3-4
  • 1 Corinthians 12:13
  • Galatians 3:26-27
  • Ephesians 5:25-27
  • Colossians 2:11-13
  • Titus 3:5
  • 1 Peter 3:21

A thorough and landmark study, this book should be in the library of every serious Bible student.
