Overview

An historical tracing of the origin, propagation of & reasons for the wide acceptation of paedobaptism (infant baptism) from the late 2nd century A.D. in opposition to Faith-Baptism as the proper New Testament baptism. Thirty-five percent of the book provides a vigorous historical presentation of how Reformed theologians developed the covenant view of baptism as being the New Testament counterpart of circumcision in the Old Testament so as to retain infant baptism in order to avoid the doctrine of baptismal regeneration of Roman Catholicism. — Chapter titles include: "Infant-Baptism & the Scriptures," "Infant-Baptism Appears the the End of the Second Century," "Infant-Baptism Slowly Gains Ground," "Infant-Baptism Triumphant through Baptismal Regeneration," "The Reformation—Luther, Zwingli & Calvin," "The Child & the Kingdom—The New Pelagianism," "Forces Operting for Faith-Baptism". — Dr. E. Y. Mullins, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (1899-1928) provided the Introduction. — 175 pages with exhaustive Scripture index provided for this version.
