Some books have been written about Samuel Petto's covenant theology. In fact, not even his main work on Covenant Theology has been updated and republished. It has been "facsimiled" and republished, and it needs to be updated and published...so more on that later...
But for now, this work on infant baptism is not only controversial "by Christ's appointment" but exceedingly helpful in a number of ways. Petto's arguments are fresh and powerful.

Samuel Petto (1624–1711) was an English Calvinist, a Cambridge graduate, and an Independent Puritan minister of the Gospel with associations at the Westminster Assembly.


This work by Samuel Petto is a theological study on baptism demonstrating that infant baptism is of Christ’s appointment. Petto shows the proof of infant baptism which stems from two arguments: the formula that Christ gave to baptize, and that infants are visibly in the Covenant. He gives solid biblical answers against a variety of objections, as well as demonstrating the validity of infant baptism from the biblical Reformed perspective. Then, he also defends his work against arguments given by a Baptist advocate in his day. He explains the biblical concepts of the Covenant of Grace, the infants’ right to the covenant and how objections against these two ideas is biblically unattainable. This is a masterful biblical and exegetical work from a renown covenant theologian.
