1829. Excerpt: ... CHAPTER IV. Examination of Dr. Gale's
"Reflections on Mr. Wall's History of Infant Baptism" and of Dr.
Cox's Book " On Baptism." Having treated this subject with as much
detail and minuteness as was necessary to give a clear view of this
very interesting and important question, the reader will now be
able to accompany me, without difficulty, in a review which I mean
to take of two works which have obtained much reputation among the
Baptists, as giving a powerful, and, as they think, a successful
defence of their tenets; and it is for this reason that I have
selected those volumes for a particular examination. The work of
Dr. Gale is considered as the most elaborate production that has
ever appeared on that side, and is certainly a shrewd and able
performance. The work of Dr. Cox is the latest book which I have
met with from the pen of a Baptist writer; and as that author has
handled the question in what he is pleased to think a new and
improved manner, I cannot deal more fairly with the argument than
by making his work the subject of my investigation. It is but fair
to let the reader see in what manner the Baptists defend their own
cause; and it is but just to the writers, too, to let them state
their own arguments in their own words. The former part of Dr.
Gale's book is wholly occupied with etymological criticisms,
illustrative of the meanings in which he understands the words
paVwo and fiairnZw, which I have already observed signify to
proselyte and to baptize: Concerning the signification of
fiaStrrtva) I have already written at some length; of /3a7m w, I
shall speak at the close of this volume. My present object is to
consider the animadversions of Dr. Gale upon Mr. Wall's general
argument. In doing this, it shall be my endeavour to omit
