Infant Baptism—Covenant Mercy for the People of God

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 baptism. This book aims to offer a fresh approach.

In order for us to be satisfied that we are being biblical Christians, we must be content with nothing less than a clear biblical case requiring infant baptism.

I had heard the usual explanations of the parallels with circumcision and its covenantal significance, but I had never heard the larger symbolism that fills the pages of scripture. The chapter entitled, "The Olive Tree and Olive Shoots" was particularly helpful. I recommend this book to all, but especially those who may be newer to the Reformed faith and still searching out their position on baptism. It will certainly challenge you to be cons... More details
