"Is my baby with God now?" For parents who've lost a child and for pastors who struggle with how to counsel them, Nash addresses questions relating to infant salvation. His discussion of universalism, salvation after death, infant baptism, and the doctrine of depravity gives pastors and parents insight that is rich in hope and grounded in Scripture. 128 pages, softcover from Zondervan.
Is my baby with God now? What does the Bible say to such a question? What hope does it offer parents grieving the loss of a precious child? The answers are merciful. However, the implications are not simple. Is God a Universalist? Is there salvation after death? What is the role of infant baptism? And what about the doctrine of depravity? If a baby is born into sin, then what? What happens to the unborn -- to the miscarried and the aborted? For pastors looking for biblical grounds to offer comfort and assurance, and for parents seeking solace for their grief, When a Baby Dies offers insights that are rich in hope and grounded solidly in Scripture.
