Book Review: Why Do We Baptize Infants?

Why Do We Baptize Infants? (Basics of the Reformed Faith)Why Do We Baptize Infants? by Bryan Chapell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A short, but clear introduction to infant baptism that shows the covenant background to the sacrament and why the New Testament does not deviate from that the Old Testament as regards children and their status. A good little pamphlet to hand out to new Christians or to those new to Reformed theology.

I just gave this to my wife a few days ago. She enjoyed it, and commented in the clarity though it's very short.

Josh, I am trying to find short books that introduce people to some of the differences between my church and the standard evangelical church. Chapell's book is a nice introduction to the topic of paedo-baptism. Thanks for reading!

Let the saints be joyful in glory, let them sing aloud on their beds, let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; to bind the kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron. Psalm 149:5-8
