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. Robert R. Booth received a Bachelor of Science in history from East Texas State University and is currently a graduate student at the Southern California Center for Christian Studies, where he also serves as program coordinator. Formerly a Baptist pastor for ten years, he now is pastor of Grace Covenant Church, and evangelical and presbyterian church.

A gracious and compelling presentation. . . . careful . . . readable . . . pastoral.
The most convincing arguments of any I have read in a book intended for laymen. . . . I give this title high marks.
Excellent. . . . the most helpful discussion I have seen for the general reader. . . . Because of his own theologicwl transformation [Booth] writes in a way that will be particularly insightful and helpful to others.
Randys writing is cogent, irenic, and proceeds from the basic issues. Such a book will be a great benefit to the church of Christ.
Especially strong in the clarity of its peresentation, 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
