- Publisher The death of a child is the most devastating experience parents can ever face. And a perplexing experience for their Christian friends and loved ones. But God has not left you alone with grief. In Safe in the Arms of God, John MacArthur highlights the Bible's many references to God's unfailing love for children and His assurance of their eternal safety. Using numerous real-life examples, this renowned and personable teacher uncovers a biblical perspective on such troubling questions as: Why did our child have to die? Will we see our child again? How can we cope with our overwhelming sorrow? What is the age of accountability? Do babies pay for the sins of their parents? Can infants and even the unborn experience salvation? What is heaven like for children? Throughout this book, Pastor MacArthur affirms this expectation: The Father delights in, and shows compassion to, His younger ones. "Every child conceived," he writes, "is a God-created and God-loved person with a God-given purpose and destiny." Therefore, God's love enfolds every child -- from the first moment of life to the last. Book jacket.

Helpful in hard times
5 stars By Rory, Aug 23 2017
This book is written for a particularly sensitive and difficult issue about whether a child who dies will go to heaven. Extremely helpful and comforting words that explain scripture and include practical real life stories of how these truths make such a difference in the midst of immense loss and grief. 
A good book to give anyone who is grieving the loss of a child, born or unborn.

A Biblical response to a hard question
5 stars By Joel Radford, Feb 21 2013
The presence of death in the world is the result of human sin. Yet we know that the Scriptures give hope to dying man - there is salvation through repentance and trust in Jesus' death for your sins. But is the heavenly hope a reality for children (and adults) who, simply due to an intellectual inability, have never been able to comprehend their sinfulness and the message of the gospel?

John Macarthur tackles this important question in his small book 'Safe in the arms of God' by affirming that such people instantly go to heaven. And this is not simply Macarthur's opinion. It is backed by Biblical evidence.

In an initial chapter Macarthur carefully teaches that God knows and loves every child. He then shows that God regards children as innocents (using proof texts from Ezekiel, Jonah, Jeremiah) until they reach an age of moral culpability. He also describes heaven and answers the question of whether you will know your child in heaven. The book then ends with wise counsel on why God allows children to die and how to minister to those grieving the loss of a child.

All Christians should be prepared for the day when they, or someone close to them, may lose a child. This book will help prepare you for that day so that you may be able to respond Biblically to God's decision to take away the child.
