Format: Paperback
Kenneth Stevenson performs a real service here as he discusses seven different approaches to baptism in the early Anglican tradition. William Perkins, Richard Hooker, Lancelot Andrewes, George Herbert, Jeremy Taylor, John Bramhall, Simon Patrick, and Herbert Thorndike are all briefly discussed. Stevenson points out strengths and weaknesses in their respective approaches. Stevenson himself grapples with the question of how baptism is related to regeneration, i.e., is one made "regenerate" in baptism (whatever that means) or is baptism merely symbolic representing a future "regeneration" of the individual at a later time. Stevenson notes that High Church sacramental theology emphasizes the role infant baptism has on the later spiritual fate of the individual whereas as Low Church forms of Anglicanism, particularly the Puritan and later the Evangelical, place much less emphasis on baptism as a sacrament that confers saving grace to the individual at the moment of baptism. Overall a healthy and fair discussion of the various streams of thought inside the Anglican tradition. An invaluable resource.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good read but could be more indepth 3 Aug. 2000
By Paul Burgin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I enjoyed the book and found it an honest defence of infant baptism, and it is good that Bishop Stevenson got to the heart of the grace and compassion involved in Infant Baptism, what does concern me however are two things. One the point of the book, is how exactly it going to help foster ecumenism with the Free and Charismatic Churches? (An obvious and likely pointless question but I feel it needs asking) Two, some more research into modern thoughts and writings on infant baptism might be appropriate.
