Why I Am a Baptist
Reverend Larkin defends the doctrines of the Baptist
church of his day, supporting his arguments with vigorous examination of
scriptural evidence. He gives special attention to such issues as the
requirement of water immersion for baptism, the inappropriateness of
infant baptism, and reasons for refusing to share the Lord’s Supper with
non-Baptists. His writing abounds with historical information and biblical
references, and in addition conveys the tenor of the Baptist world at the
turn of the 20th century.
