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.
