Author Bio

James Robinson Graves (1820–1893) was an American Baptist preacher and leader of Landmarkism—a mid-nineteenth-century movement marked by the belief in the exclusive validity of Baptist churches and the theory of Baptist succession since apostolic times. Graves remains one of the most colorful and controversial figures among the Southern Baptists. He was editor of the Baptist (or later the Tennessee Baptist), and author of numerous books including The Relation of Baptism to Salvation, The First Baptist Church in America, and The Seven Dispensations.
