Calvinism of Early Baptists

David Benedict, in his 50 Years Among the Baptists (p.144), speaks of John Leland (1754-1841), the Baptist preacher who had much success in establishing the liberties that we have in America. Benedict wrote: "John Leland, although a Calvinist, was not one of the strictest class. Two grains of Arminianism, with three of Calvinism, he thought, would make a tolerably good compound."
