Pastor William Oosterman is the author of the following book
A book that deals with the issue of infant baptism. It is a novel about a young boy who dies before he can be sprinkled and the reaction of the whole town of Delden N.Y. to this situation.
The title of the book is taken from 2 Kings 4:26, where Elisha, through his servant, asks the Shunammite woman, "Is it well with the child?" She answered, "It is well" even though the child was dead at that time. This book addresses, among other things, the serious issue of what happens to children who die before they are old enough to know right from wrong.
