Product Description

My goal in this little book is pastorally to explain the scriptural foundation for infant baptism. To do this I will first present the biblical support for infant baptism as I have presented it in new members' and church officer training classes over the past twenty-five years. Then I will conclude by offering words of explanation that I have often used as a pastor during the administration of the ordinance. My goals are to help explain why we should baptize the infants of believing parents and also to help pastors better to know how to administer the sacrament in ways that are meaningful and helpful for their churches. Thus, I plan to present this material in terms that are accessible to laypersons and to leave technical discussions to able scholars in other books.

"The Basics of the Reformed Faith series of booklets provides us with brief, clear, accurate and edifying introductions to key aspects of Christian life and experience. They are biblically sound, well researched, and written by faithful pastor-teachers."
--Ligon Duncan Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, Mississippi

Editorial Reviews

In this clear, winsome explanation of baptism by faith, Bryan Chapell shows the biblical background, basis, and benefits of infant baptism. In addition to stating the main arguments for the biblical practice of infant baptism, Dr. Chapell explains how the sacrament functions as a pledge of God's promises. Why Do We Baptize Infants? will surely become the booklet of choice for many churches in helping parents and other church members understand, accept, and celebrate the covenant sacrament of Christian baptism.
Bryan’s brief work on baptism is worthy to be put in the hands of every Christian parent within our churches. Not only is it brief and to the point but it is clear and convincing. It will be a resource used regularly at our church.
