This book is a definitive historical analysis of the Presbyterian doctrine of baptism, and a defence of this doctrine against the inroads of revivalism.
"This great book [is] virtually the only major study of the Bible's doctrine of saving grace at work in the lines of generations. Schenck explains both the present confusion and the way back to a more biblical view of our children and the responsibilities of parents and churches for their spiritual life." - Robert S. Rayburn
"Dr. Schenck has rendered us a great service... We hope that through it the Presbyterian Churches may once more acquire a true insight into the real meaning of the covenant and into the significance of infant baptism." - Louis Berkhof (1940)
