Why should we baptize babies when the Bible says nothing about it?
For years, Douglas Wilson was a credobaptist, even after accepting Calvinism and Postmillennialism. However, when he sat down to write a book on baptism, he came to question his own views and to realize that the biblical teachings point in exactly the opposite direction. The result of that study is this book. Here, Douglas Wilson shows that we do not get the Bible's position on baptism by cataloging all the verses on baptism, but by looking at circumcision, the shift from the old to the new covenant, Jesus' words on olive branches, and the assumptions that New Testament Christians would have had.
Douglas Wilson is a pastor in Moscow, Idaho, a father of three, and grandfather of seventeen. He is the author of numerous books, including Decluttering Your Marriage, Future Men, and How to Exasperate Your Wife.
