Cuthbert Sydenham (or Sidenham) (1622–1654) was a Reformed, Prebyterian, Calvinistic Preacher during the era of the Westminster Assembly.
This work on Covenant Theology and Infant Baptism is a complete Presbyterian treatment of the subject. Cuthbert writes against the rising error in his day of credo-baptism, or believers only baptism. He shows that the credo-baptistic position is by inference only, and how that position is scripturally unattainable, and that it does not reflect the manner in which God works in covenant with his people. He covers the nature of the Covenant made with Abraham, whether the infants may be called the seed of Abraham, and how any person may be said to be in the Covenant. This is a masterful polemic against the error of dispensationalism, and demonstrates faithfully the Scriptural foundation of God's covenant.
