That said, there is some praiseworthy content to be found. The doctrines of regeneration and conversion are often clouded and stirred together in muddy waters, the author brings some clarity to the differences between the two in a short and understandable way. He holds to the traditional reformed view that regeneration precedes faith. He also makes a short but helpful rebuttal of baptismal regeneration. The greatest strength of this short booklet is its foundation that the Christian parent must trust in God and His sovereignty to save our children. He gently reminds us that our children’s professions (which, growing up in a Christian home, may happen on several occasions) are not the grounds of their salvation, but the God who keeps His promises is. For this, the book is beneficial. However, those in the broader reformed camp that hold to credo-baptism, may find the book reads too much like an apologetic for covenant baptism.
