The place of children in the church is something of an enigma among Christians. Should the children of believers be regarded as part of the covenant community, with the privileges and responsibilities that accompany that status? Or are they simply unbelievers, like children in the non-Christian world? What was the place of children in the Old Testament, and how does that compare with their position in the New?
In this book, Richard Pratt, Bryan Chapell, Joel Beeke, Joseph Pipa, Dan Doriani, Douglas Wilson, Cornelis Venema, R.C. Sproul Jr. and others cover aspects of the biblical underpinnings of the doctrine of infant baptism, arguments against it, and reasons for it.
"Seeing baptism in the light of covenant theology unfolds the richness of the promises set forth in that blessed sign and seal. This volume is a welcome exposition of the biblical doctrine."
