Originally published in 1674, this is a welcome addition the the current baptism debate. Often it has been said that Baptists historically have published little on the subject compared with the plethora of paedobaptism writings. No more can this be said in light of Danver's work. The volume is divided into two parts: (1) the establishment of confessor's baptism from Scripture and early church history, and (2) the refutation of paedobaptism from Scripture and early church history. Danvers' biblical argument much favors the principle that the reformed regulative principle of worship establishes a disciple's baptism while refuting the biblical silence of paedobaptism.
