Booklet Description:

This booklet teaches readers why infant baptism is an essential practice for the Church.

Ultimately, Reformed churches baptize infants because this practice heralds God's glorious covenant promises. This visible proclamation of God's word is a God-given means to cultivate biblical godliness in the Church, in parenting, and in the lives of our children. Ryan M. McGraw takes us beyond the question of whether infant baptism is right and shows us what difference it actually makes.

Series Description:
D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones once said that what the church needs to do most all is "to begin herself to live the Christian life. If she did that, men and women would be crowding into our buildings. They would say, 'What is the secret of this?'" As Christians, one of our greatest needs is for the Spirit of God to cultivate biblical godliness in us in order to put the beauty of Christ on display through us, all to the glory of the triune God. With this goal in mind, this series of booklets treats matters vital to Christian experience at a basic level. Each booklet addresses a specific question in order to inform the mind, warm the affections, and transform the whole person by the Spirit's grace, so that the church may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior in all things.

Author:

Ryan M. McGraw is the Morton H. Smith Professor of Systematic Theology, Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary. He has written more than 10 books in RHB's Cultivating Biblical Godliness series.

Endorsements:

"Writing with his characteristic clarity and warmth, Ryan McGraw has dispelled doubts and demystified infant baptism. What is often dismissed is here demonstrated to be entirely consistent with the spirit and truth of divine revelation-as that which both establishes our identity in Christ and assures us of the priority of the Father's love -He loved us before we loved Him!"
--Liam Gohliger, senior minister, Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
