In his ten-year ministry, he had put off studying the topic of baptism. Then the Baptist pastor felt his heart sink as he began to see how Scripture challenged his long-held beliefs. What would prompt him to change his views- and find great encouragement in the doctrine of infant baptism?

Are there good biblical reasons to baptize the children of believers? What does the Bible say about your children? Robert R. Booth answers these questions by carefully unveiling the covenant promises of God to Christian parents and their households.

"The most convincing arguments of any I have read in a book intended for laymen...I give this title high marks." - Walter C. Hibbard

"Excellent...the most helpful discussion I have seen for the general reader...Because of his own theological transformation [Booth] writes in a way that will be particularly insightful and helpful to others." - Greg L. Bahnsen

"Especially strong in the clarity of its presentation, the inclusion of sample dialogues to make the book more personal, and the concern for love...[Booth] is clearly friendly to those with whom he disagrees, but not at the expense of truth." - Vern S. Poythress
