Kuyperian Press was founded to provide works that are accessible to the layman in the parish. In this new work, Dr. Gregg Strawbridge provides a wonderful summary of the case for infant baptism in the Bible.
What makes this booklet different?
Strawbridge has provided various charts and biblical connections making the case that the Bible’s promise to the children of the covenant has not been forgotten in the New Testament.
“In this little book, Gregg Strawbridge provides a clear, concise and compelling case for infant baptism. He anticipates the important questions, provides succinct answers, and thereby adds a highly valuable resource to the current conversation.”
– John G. Crawford, Author of Baptism is Not Enough
This book argues that authority cannot be identified with mere power, is not to be played off against freedom, and is not a mere social construction. Rather it is resident in an office given us by God himself at creation. This central office is in turn dispersed into a variety of offices relevant to our different life activities in a wide array of communal settings. Far from being a conservative bromide, the call to respect authority is foundational to respect for humanity itself.
“Once upon a time, fathers had “the talk” with their sons. They used to say it was the talk about “the birds and the bees.” As a young man, I had that talk, not with my father, but with my godfather, John. I still remember it, mostly because I was fascinated by his willingness to tell me “adult” stuff. Some fathers still have this talk, but it has become increasingly rare and increasingly more difficult to do. For many it seems unnecessary because of all the things our sons are learning in school and from pop culture. Fathers don’t need to talk to sons about changes in their bodies because someone else already has. And fathers can’t talk to sons about the birds and bees part because they don’t have the technical “body changing” stuff to break the ice anymore. There is more to the talk, though, than just the information that is passed between father and son; the talk itself has a formative impact on the young man.”
In Letters to My Sons, M. G. Bianco writes real letters to his real sons on a variety of topics from love, hate, marriage, adultery, and interpersonal relationships. His letters seek to encourage his sons, and now other fathers and men to understand the basis and nature of relationships so that both parties to the relationship can be fully human.
M. G. Bianco is married to his altogether lovely high school sweetheart, Patty. They have three kids they homeschool together, and he works as the Director of Education for Classical Conversations. Is he a modern day C. S. Lewis? No. But he really enjoys reading him.

The Christian walk is a journey. Biblically, it is a journey from Egypt to the Promised Land. This is what Chuck DeGroat elaborates beautifully in his book, “Leaving Egypt: Finding God in the Wilderness Places.” But in between, the wilderness is a place of testing, and paradoxically, the place where God matures and conforms us to Himself. But as fallen people, we fail to see just how sanctifying the wilderness can be. We fail to see that it is there where life actually begins and where our affections are re-edenized. In this wonderful interview, DeGroat uses his training as a theologian and counselor to show us the better way; the way of life through death.
There is resurrection coming! It has been almost a year since Trinity Talk produced a new interview. My schedule has picked up quite a bit at church and Trinity Talk became secondary in my priority list. But with the new format, I will be able to produce more interviews with world class scholars on a host of issues. My time is precious and in order for me to dedicate time outside of my regular work schedule it will have to be financially worth my time. Here is the potential downside for some: each interview will cost $0.49. Yes, half a dollar to download a well-edited interview with world class scholars and authors.
What is coming? On my list I have interviews on Christian Counseling with Dr. Chuck DeGroat, Eschatology with Dr. Joel McDurmon, and Theology of Imitation with Dr. Jason Hood. It also appears that I have just secured an interview with Andy Crouch on his new book. Stay tuned!
