The Little Baptist
By J.M. Martin
A Young Girl's Look at Plain Truth
The Baptist Distinctives, especially that of Baptism are dealt with very plainly in this little book originally printed before the Civil War. Young Mellie Brown finds answers in the Bible to all her questions, and when they conflict with the teaching 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 that 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.
