Infant Baptism: Covenant Mercy for the People of God

Publisher: Canon Press
Trade Paperback, 123 pages
Price: $10.00

The debate over infant baptism should begin where the problem does—with the children. The issue of baptism operates against the backdrop of the divine promises to Christian parents. Only after we understand parenthood can we properly turn to a discussion of covenantal baptism. Between the testaments we find total and complete continuity on the subject of Godly parenting.

This book aims to offer a fresh approach to the discussion, avoiding arguments that merely show infant baptism to be consistent with Scripture. Such a task requires an approach that begins with shared premises of parenting.
