Sacrament of the Covenant of Grace
Pierre-Charles Marcel,Philip Edgcumbe Hughes, 260 pages
The author treats the complex subject of baptism within the broad context of the theology of justification and of grace, yet is careful not to lose sight of the Biblical evidence. It is only when he has shown, after a careful study of both Old and New Testaments, the position of a child within the Covenant of Grace that he turns his attention to the specific subject of baptism. Marcel's vindication of the doctrine of infant baptism is the more impressive because it does not rely upon archaeological or patristic evidence about the practice of the early Church convincing as that evidence may be but on the evidence of Scripture.
