Product Description

Am I Ready to be Baptized?
by Kyle Butt and John Farber

The dream of every Christian parent is to one day see his or her child mature to the point of becoming a Christian. Training up a child in the way he should go certainly is no easy task. In fact, it ranks among the most difficult missions this side of eternity. One of the most challenging aspects of this job is knowing when your child is ready to take responsibility for his or her soul by being baptized and becoming a Christian.

As a concerned parent, you probably have been over the scenarios in your mind a hundred times. You know that you do not want to turn your children away from God by denying them the opportunity to become a Christian when they are ready. You also know, however, that if the decision is made too early, when the child is not ready, that could potentially be just as detrimental. How old does a child need to be to be a candidate for baptism? When will your child be ready?

In truth, every child is different. There is no magic age like 12 or 13 when a child suddenly graduates into maturity. For some it is sooner, for others it is latter. And, just like there is no magic age, neither is there a mathematical formula you as the parent can apply to be sure that you make the right decision. You are, however, in the best position to know your child.

This book, therefore, is written to help you ask your child some of the vital questions involved in becoming a Christian. There is no substitute for godly parents who are bringing their children up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. This book, however, can be a valuable resource that can be used to open up dialog between the parent and child. Written and illustrated in a style that maturing children can understand and appreciate, this book forces its young readers to ask themselves some really tough questions. In the process, it supplies the reader with the crucial biblical knowledge needed to become a child of God.

    Some Needed Help

    Posted by Emery Bear on Aug. 3, 2017

    I imagine we have all struggled at one time or another when a young person says they want to be baptized. Now having used first "Am I Ready to be Baptized? " followed by "Am I Ready" with parents going through the workbook with their child, I find that a more mature decision is in process. A deeper understanding of making a commitment to being a Christian has taken hold.
