Great book for parents and adults.
As John MacArthur wrote in the Foreword:
” … Justin is uniquely qualified to write on these issues. I’m very grateful for this book, which I know will be a great help to parents, a welcome encouragement to everyone who ministers to young people, and a wonderful resource for adults and young people alike who want to make certain their faith is real and their grasp of gospel truth is accurate.” John MacArthur
The author biblically addresses an issue that has, for far too long, plagued the visible Christian church--the issue of false conversion among young people in the church. He addresses the issue by hitting head-on the sensitive subject of the baptism of children. In doing so, the author wonderfully and succinctly, while all-the-while charitably, has his readers examine their own hearts under the watchful eye of the perfect proctor--Scripture.
Along the way, the author shares the conversion testimony of a Brazilian pastor/elder named Danilo. I never tire of reading/hearing the testimonies of the truly converted. Danilo's story will bless you.
For too many years, children have been led down the primrose path to false conversion, with stops at the unfruitful outposts of "the sinner's prayer" and premature baptism. As a street evangelist, I daily face the consequences of churches that rush to declare children saved. Today, many of them are the angry professed atheists and theists on university campuses.
Justin Peters' book is a clarion call to the church to turn away from the traditions of men for the sake of the souls of the children. If you are a parent of young children, if you are involved in any kind of ministry involving children and/or youth, if you are relying on your baptism or some prayer you prayed at summer camp for the assurance of your salvation, PLEASE read this book.
The book never answers the question: "What is wrong with baptizing a teenager? What is the consequence?"
It is a rather short, trite take on a doctrinal issue without presenting any actual doctrinal evidence against why a kid the age of John, when he became a disciple of Jesus, should not be baptized.
Don't waste your time. Find a practical book on how to train your children to love and fear God or a theologically sound book on baptism.
