Item Description...
Infant baptism is an issue that divides the largest Protestant denomination from its sister denominations; and it remains, in many churches, the subject of frequent and sometimes heated debate. This is particularly the case in Reformation churches where the influence of Baptist doctrine has caused members to question their practice of baptizing infants. Children of Promise is Geoffrey Bromiley's attempt to "get at the biblical understanding which underlies the continuation of infant baptism in many of the evangelical churches." In addition to examining the scriptural basis for baptizing infants, Bromiley also considers the meaning of baptism, the relation of baptism to the three persons of the Trinity, and the question of the salvation of infants. A concluding chapter presents a list of guidelines for churches to follow as they examine the practice of baptizing infants. "This is a superb little book, convincingly argued on biblical grounds and very well presented in a clear, commendable, irenic style." - Thomas F. Torrance Geoffrey W. Bromiley is professor emeritus of Church History and Historical Theology at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California. He is best known as the translator of numerous theological books, including the 9-volume Theological Dictionary of the New Testament.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Valuable Study  Aug 11, 2001
The doctrine of infant baptism has been a controversial one in the churches of the Reformation. Many denominations argue that the doctrine lacks Biblical foundation. To address this question Geoffrey Bromiley wrote this concise study of the question some years ago. It's good to see this book in print again. As Bromiley notes there is no question that adults who come to faith out of paganism are to be baptized. The issue is whether children of believers should be baptized. While the New Testament doesn't explicitly say "yes," there are good reasons to support the practice. Most importantly, if the children of believers are members of the church, then it follows that they should be baptized. Particularly strong is Bromiley's linking of the practice of infant baptism to a Calvinist approach to predestination. This is a brief, but rewarding book on a controversial subject.
