Ben M. Bogard was the preeminent leader of Landmark Baptists during the first half of the twentieth century. He was the personification of polemics, engaging the political, cultural, and religious issues of his day. Whether he was debating Aimee Semple McPherson, accusing J. Frank Norris of failing to preach the fundamentals of the faith, campaigning to outlaw the teaching of evolution, or condemning the ecumenical movement, Bogard never ceased defining and defending his understanding of the true Christian faith. This book, the first scholarly biography of one of the most important Baptists in twentieth-century America, traces Bogard’s life as he rose to prominence, organized Landmark Baptists, created a seminary and publishing enterprise, and became the father of the modern Landmark Baptist movement.
