James Foster (1697-1753) was an English Baptist minister; he was a nonconformist. He attended Joseph Hallett's Presbyterian academy where he met other radicals, including Hubert Stogdon, and achieved a reputation for rejecting human authority in matters of religious controversy, belief, and practical piety, privileging what he believed to be the indubitable consequences of reason and argument over passive faith and received wisdom.
