Endorsements & Reviews-

"The author helps us to see that in the New Testament era many of the baptisms were of adults who came to saving faith after having lived in sin for a time. Today , however, thousands of youth are baptized after a happy and largely carefree childhood of innocence. God's ideal is for this period of innocence to be the norm, and for making the crossover to saving faith - the appropriation of the faith in which one has been reared - at the first clear call of the Spirit.

Let no one assert that the writer does not believe in conversion. He does. But urges the church to give more attention to happy Christian homes, to being more creative in the nurture of its youth, and to making baptism services occasions for joyful celebration. The whole process is the more excellent way. This book deserves wide reading and earnest acceptance."
