About-

This book is written for young families. It avoids the baptism debate while graciously presenting the story of God's faithful provision, protection, and promise of deliverance for His people given through the sign of the covenant. Beginning with Adam and continuing through Abraham--where the covenant is ratified and developed in the forming of the nation of Israel--it traces through the Scripture 1) God's common grace for all people, 2) His covenant grace for believers and their children received through the sign of the covenant, and 3) His saving grace applied through faith. The reader is shown how the same levels of grace are given in a deeper and fuller way upon the finished work of Jesus Christ. The themes of provision, protection, and deliverance are applied to our present day. The book concludes by taking the reader through five questions commonly asked of parents and congregations during the baptism ceremony.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"What a wonderful book! This isn't just a book about baptizing children, it's a book about God's graciousness and care for his people. Read it and give it to every family you know. They will rise up and call you blessed! And you'll rise up and call me blessed for commending it to you."
--Steve Brown, professor emeritus, Reformed Theological Seminary, Florida

"Using a rich biblical theology of the gospel of grace, Bob practically explains how parents should view having their child brought under God's umbrella of grace. Bob's years of pastoral ministry and leadership make this a winning resource. Why Baptizing Your Child Matters is helpful, thoughtful, and sound. I recommend you get this book!"
--Tom Wood, President, CMM, Inc.
