Scope and Content

Baxter’s treatise given in reply to responses to his Whether parish congregations be true christian churches (1684) which itself was an explanation of some passages in A Treatise of Episcopacy (1681). Baxter answers John Owen’s twelve arguments against communion with parish churches citing scripture and church testimony, insisting on the legitimacy 'primitive church-species' and the wrongness of the persecution inflicted on them and the schism effected by such.
