Paedofaith: A Primer on the Mystery of Infant Salvation and a Handbook for Christian Parents
At what point is it reasonable to suggest that a covenant child has faith? When she can articulate the gospel? When he can explain the concept of justification?
Only after they have gone through an extended period where their faith is tested and proven to be real faith? Or is the capacity for faith directly linked to a certain age or level of maturity?
The Scriptures indicate that we can be confident that our children have faith from the womb and that we can expect that faith to flower and bloom throughout their life by God's grace.
What is the nature of such faith? From where does it come and what do the Scriptures have to say about it? How can anyone say that an infant has the capacity for faith?
In this book, Rich Lusk answers these questions and more, giving hope to Christian parents that their little ones do indeed belong to Christ and have the capacity to trust Him.
