A String of Pearls Unstrung

SKU 733 Categories , Topics ,

This booklet is not only an argument for credobaptism over and against paedobaptism, it also has blood and tears mixed with it. Malone was trained at a Presbyterian seminary and he served as a Presbyterian pastor for years before he came to Baptist convictions. He states the views of Reformed paedobaptist theology ever so carefully, but he also carefully and sincerely disassembles that position with the Word of God. Malone’s change to Baptist ecclesiology cost him greatly. I observed too many Baptists becoming Presbyterians from what appeared to be convenience, but the depth of Malone’s conviction earned my respect and made me take his arguments that much more seriously.
