It looks really interesting, and an endorsement by John MacArthur suggests it could be worthwhile.

I already know it's a problem. I've seen it. Glad somebody wrote a book about it, but I don't need to be convinced I should worry about it. I already do.

Tyler is a pastor in Olympia, WA and an Investigations Manager with a Washington State agency. He's the author of the book What's It Mean to Be a Baptist?

Maybe I'll report back on whether it's deeper than "high pressure tactics yield false conversions."  Feel free to nag me if you don't hear back.

Here.  More or less, Peters makes a great case against revivalism and easy-believism with no need for discipleship, suffering, and the like.  However, I think he falls short in attributing this to being willing to baptize children.
