Should Babies be Baptized
Author: Thomas Watson

The author examines every text of Scripture relating to the subject of baptism, with special reference to those used as proof-texts for infant baptism. He surveys the historical evidence of the first two centuries of the Christian era. He presents a detailed critique of the arguments used in favour of baptizing babies, and marshals nearly 200 quotations from noted paedobaptist authors to show that every argument used by paedobaptists is refuted by other paedobaptists.

Special Children
Author: Eric Lane
ISBN: 9780946462391
Price: 6-99
This is a book for Christian parents who want to know what the Bible has to say about their children. Are they different from other children? Are they different from the children of the old covenant? Are they sinful? If so, when did this begin? Are they morally responsible and, if so, from what age? Can they be converted and, if so, how early can this be looked for? How do we go about bringing them to faith? What happens if they die before that happens or, even worse, before they are capable of being told the Gospel? These and other questions are considered in the light of Scripture.

I Can Plod
