Gary Crampton's "From Paedobaptism to Credobaptism"
In the opening chapter of his book, Crampton cites a three-fold problem with infant baptism: (1) there are no examples of infant baptism in the NT; (2) baptism and the Lord's Supper go together (therefore, it does not makes sense to offer one--baptism to infants--while witholding the other--the table); and (3) there are multiple differences among paedobaptists as to why infants should be baptized (see pp. 4-10).
You can also read a multi-part interview with Dr. Crampton conducted by Richard Barcellos on the Illumination blog: part one, part two, part three, and part four.
