Samuel Miller, a contemporary of Princeton theologian Charles Hodge, offers here an excellent treatise on the scriptural basis of infant baptism, and skillfully responds to the many objections that have been raised against its practice. This work also takes an historical look at the doctrines of modern Baptist theology and traces their roots back to the Anabaptists of the Sixteenth Century.

About the Author
Samuel Miller was born in Dover, Delaware on October 31, 1769. His father was the Rev. John Miller (1722-1791). Miller attended the University of Pennsylvania and graduated in 1789. He earned his license to preach in 1791, and the university awarded him a Doctorate of Divinity degree (D.D.) in 1804. From 1813 to 1849, he served as Professor of Ecclesiastical History and Church Government at Princeton Theological Seminary, and was also integral in founding the institution. Throughout his career, Miller participated in many of the controversies that took place within the Presbyterian Church, including that which resulted in its division into New and Old Schools. He also published several theological and polemical works, including Letters on Unitarianism (1821), An Essay on the Office of the Ruling Elder (1831), and Thoughts on Public Prayer (1849). Miller died in Princeton, New Jersey on January 7, 1850.
