5.0 out of 5 stars Much light, little heat, and a sprinkling of water..., July 19, 2000
This review is from: To a Thousand Generations: Infant Baptism ~ Covenant Mercy to the Children of God (Paperback)
The debate over infant baptism has raged across the centuries, often causing rifts and wounds that won't heal. The tragic thing about these debates is that they often rest on misinformation and confusion. How many advocates of infant baptism attempt to appeal to the phantom children of the Philippian jailer? How many opponents of infant baptism equate it with baptismal regeneration? In both cases, too many! Wilson, ever the careful exegete and consummate logician, presents a clear case for infant baptism by starting where any discussion on this subject should: in the OLD TESTAMENT! Very few if any proponents of believer's baptism begin their argument in the Old Testament (and if you start with the New, you will inevitably argue against infant baptism!) Wilson's discussion of God's covenants with His people is worth the price of the book, but it is only the appetizer. The main course is his studied presentation of the validity of infant baptism. Every objection raised by the adherents of believer's baptism is dealt with thoroughly and fairly. Even if you are dead set against the idea of infant baptism, you can learn much from this book that is beyond dispute: the nature of God's covenant relationship with all Christians. Every pastor and Bible teacher should have this volume in their library. Every Christian wanting to have a balanced view of baptism should as well.

Thank you for the review. I would add that I think you concede too much by saying that if a person uses only the NT that they will follow the Baptist line.
