Excerpt from The Scriptural Mode of Christian Baptism

Why another book on "Baptism"? The subject has been discussed for hundreds of years, and thousands of volumes have been written upon it, and the subject is still unsettled. This is all true, and yet there is no subject that has more interest in it to the people in general than this much-discussed subject. There is no discussion on any theological question, especially in the rural communities, that will draw such crowds and create such interest as a discussion on the subject of "Baptism." The reason the author has for the publication of this book may be stated as follows: On my first charge, Raleigh Circuit, Southern Illinois Conference, in August, 1853, when I was but twenty-one years of age, I had a debate with a very prominent Baptist minister in that part of the State on the subject and mode of "Baptism." We discussed "Infant Baptism" two days and a half, and the mode half a day, and he left the field without replying to my third speech. That gave me quite a reputation as a debater, and when such work had to be done in all that country, I was generally sent for to do it. As a result, I had to meet the champions of immersion of the West, such as J. Cole, Baptist, and J. S. Sweeny, J. K. Speer, Dr. J. H. Lucas, Clarke Braden, and W. B. F. Treat, of the Disciple or Campbellite Church.
