Perhaps then you are like me. I grew up Baptist and have been baptistic in my view of baptism for most of my life. That is, to be baptistic is to believe only believers should be baptized by full immersion into a pool of water and that baptizing infants by sprinkling or pouring is wrong. Strange as it may seem, reading the Bible led me on a long and winding road to embrace infant baptism as the view most consistent with the Bible. Many have gone before me on this path, and perhaps you are wondering if this is the path for you. This book, I hope, approaches this topic in the spirit of civility as it offers a biblical case for infant baptism surrounded by both family and church. I write this book for you and your children and for our church. Infant baptism is the first public step in nurturing our children into the faith.
