Recommended Resource on the Status of Covenant Children

For those of you who may have read the On Deciding Whether A Child is Ready to Receive the Lord’s Supper and Contra Schenck posts and who are now looking for further resources on the status of the children of believers, I’d like to recommend the following audio resource:

Children of the Covenant – What is the Status of the Children of Believers?

This is a lecture given by Dr. Mark Herzer at the “Signs of Redemption” conference at Providence PCA in 2005. The conference discussed the Old School Presbyterian view of the sacraments and in so doing discussed a host of associated subjects including the status of Covenant Children, Paedocommunion, etc. I wish I had printed versions of the lectures to share, but unfortunately none are available.

    Thanks Andy. I have the conference loaded onto my mp3 player and I’m looking forward to it.

    BTW, you were right. Mark Herzer is still in the PCA. I was given bad info at presbytery.
