You and Your Household: The Biblical Case for Infant Baptism (free PDF)
Why should you have this book? George Grant says, "The genius of this book is that it does not merely present a Scriptural vision for a covenantal and baptismal theology but that it presents a covenantal and baptismal theology for a Scriptural vision. In other words, Gregg Strawbridge has not simply marshaled proof texts in order to ride a particular doctrinal hobby-horse as much as he has offered us a glimpse of a fully-orbed Biblical worldview. This will now be a go-to resource for my own pastoral ministry." Randy Booth (author of Children of the Promise: the Biblical Case for Infant Baptism) says, "I have shared this theological and even psychological journey with Dr. Strawbridge. From murky and obscure to clear and beautiful, the biblical view of baptism fills us with hope and anticipation as we stand on the unshakable promises of God for us and our children. Without reservation, I commend this short treatise on baptism to help you begin your journey to this happy place." Rev'd Steve Jeffrey (Minister of Emmanuel Evangelical Church, London, England) says, "Many Christians withhold baptism from their children, being unpersuaded that infant baptism is biblical. Others baptize their children, but don’t really understand why. Gregg Strawbridge has written the perfect antidote for both groups – a punchy, persuasive book, marshaling the vast weight of biblical support for the Reformed doctrine of infant baptism." And John G. Crawford (author of Baptism is Not Enough) says, "In this little book, Gregg Strawbridge provides a clear, concise and compelling case for infant baptism. He anticipates the important questions, provides succinct answers, and thereby adds a highly valuable resource to the current conversation."
Does the Bible teach the infant children of Christians are to be baptized? Or, was baptism only to be given to “believers” who consciously profess allegiance to Christ? If this is a question you need to work through, I hope you will find this short study helpful. This booklet develops an exegetical argument from the pattern of baptisms in the NT to support the case for infant baptism. Revised and updated in 2015, just prior to the Strawbridge v White Debate on Infant Baptism (Orlando, FL). Rev. Gregg Strawbridge, Ph.D. is the editor/contributor of The Case for Covenantal Infant Baptism (Presbyterian & Reformed, 2003). This is Pastor Strawbridge's most succinct argument for Covenantal Infant Baptism, emphasizing NT examples of baptism. This product is a booklet (32 pages) which will be shipped to you.
