Children At the Lord's Table?

Children At the Lord's Table?

$42.99

Hardback
A growing trend among Reformed churches is the practice of admitting young children to the Lords Supper. In Children at the Lords Table?, Cornelis P. Venema provides an insightful analysis of the theoretical arguments used by advocates of this recent trend. After clarifying terms and explaining arguments often made in favor of paedocommunion, he considers the history of the churchs confessions, teaching, and practice regarding the proper recipients of the Lords Supper. Presenting a historical, exegetical, and systematic treatment of the subject, Venema demonstrates the validity and value of having covenant children partake of first communion subsequent to their personal profession of faith. This is an invaluable resource for every pastor within the Reformed tradition.
