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
