The Case for Covenantal Infant Baptism
3 In Stock
Edited by Gregg Strawbridge
The place of children in the church is something of an enigma among Christians. Are children of believers part of the covenant community, with privileges and responsibilities that accompany that status? Or are they simply unbelievers, like children in a non-Christian world? What promise does God give believing parents and their children? What place did children have in the Old Testament, and how does that compare with their position in the New?
These are some of the questions involved in whether to baptize infant children of believers. In this volume sixteen contributors, including Bryan Chapell, Daniel Doriani, Richard Pratt, and Cornelis Venema, make a thorough case for covenantal infant baptism. They discuss pastoral concerns, biblical interpretation, and confessional and historical support for paedobaptism, and they answer objections. Readers will gain a fuller understanding of covenant theology and the place of children in the church.
