Why Believe? Reason and Mystery as Pointers to God


Eerdmans 1996

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


This book is written for young families. It avoids the baptism debate while graciously presenting the story of God’s faithful provision, protection, and promise of deliverance for his people given through the sign of the covenant. Beginning with Adam and continuing through Abraham—where the covenant is ratified and developed in the forming of the nation of Israel—it traces through the Scripture 1) God’s common grace for all people, 2) his covenant grace for believers and their children received through the sign of the covenant, and 3) his saving grace applied through faith. The reader is shown how the same levels of grace are given in a deeper and fuller way upon the finished work of Jesus Christ. The themes of provision, protection, and deliverance are applied to our present day. The book concludes by taking the reader through five questions commonly asked of parents and congregations during the baptism ceremony.
