The novel that has inspired such ardent allegiance is the story of Mr. Bobby Pickens, of Tula Springs, Louisiana, who gets a new lease on life - and comes almost to regret it. A gentle yet madcap comedy, filled with farce and true feeling, "Modern Baptists" is a novel that offers its readers the gift of abundant laughter.show more
