He defines the question carefully, and sets about proving his case with biblical and theological arguments designed to counter the attack made on the practice by influential antipaedobaptists.Throughout his exposition, Owen has his eye on the glory and honour of Christ which he perceives to be under threat if the children of believers are not given the sign of the covenant which Christ has confirmed.

He seeks to defend not just a doctrine but the loving care God has for the church, which he felt was not always adequately appreciated.Lee Gatiss is studying for a PhD, following parish work in the City of London and Northampton. He is Editor of The Theologian: The Internet Journal for Integrated Theology. Having read Modern History at New College, Oxford, worked with students, and trained for Anglican ministry at Oak Hill Theological College he completed a curacy in Northamptonshire before moving to London.

He is a member of the Latimer Trust Theological Work Group and the Editorial Board of the journal Churchman, as well as Co-ordinator of Reform London.Published 2008 in hard copy under ISBN: 978 0 946307 70 8
