A rather rare little mid-19th century work in the height of the Baptist - Christian Church - Disciples of Christ - Stone-Campbell revivalist / evangelist movement in New England. To many Presbyterians, etc., it seemed more like church-pilfering, i.e. the Baptist evangelist would convince existing believers they were no believers at all, or unfaithful at the least, re-baptize them, and plant new churches. Of course that is probably a generalization or caricature, but there were cases that lent credibility to the narrative.

In the present, Presbyterian divine Daniel Dana Jr. has a series of conversations with his bootmaker, who is tempted to join the dunkers. In a wide ranging series of conversations they cover hermeneutics, history, logic, and some challenges to teh education, ethics, and practices of the Baptist evangelists, i.e. the "convulsions" of the anabaptists, etc.,
