Hiscox Standard Baptist Manual
My experience is that many people, like me, come to a Baptist church after some experience in other kinds of churches. This manual is invaluable in laying out the fundamentals of Baptist doctrine and practice. While many of the fundamentals are easy to understand as a sort of "working knowledge", the finer points of doctrine and why such doctrines are held are elucidated plainly in this manual. I recommend it to any baptist believer.
