"And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus." 2 Timothy 3:15
The Baptist Distinctives, especially that of Baptism are dealt very plainly in this little book originally printed before the Civil War. Young Mellie Brown finds answers in the Bible to all of her questions, and when they conflict with the teachings of her church she stands firm on the Bible. Through its pages and the clear teachings of Christ, she becomes a Christian and a BAPTIST because she believes the the Bible is a Baptist Book.
As a young woman, after hiding God's Word in her heart, Mellie was called upon to defend her position with the learned Doctor of theology from her childhood church. She was able to stand only on the Truth of the Word of God to defend her position, and her testimony was a great influence in the Community.
The Little Baptist was written so that a child or an adult may read it with equal enjoyment and learning. This is the facsinating and captivating story of little ten-year-old Mellie, who, through her personal study of the Bible given to her as a gift by her older brother, came to understand the Bible way of salvation, and baptism by emersion. Though raised as a Presbyterian Mellie became a Little Baptist.
