Scope and Content

Baxter’s examination of a book treated, by way of dialogue, on the nature of ecclesiastical government, the Kingdom of Jesus Christ and the Christian ministry.

Includes: ‘§1 This booke is considerable 1˚ as to the Manner 2˚ as to the matter. I put the Manner first because it is fitted partly to conceale the matter, & partly to deceive the reader on pretense of opening it.’


Black supposes the book so treated to be Isaac Chauncy’s On Baxter’s Treatises (1684).
