Preface to the Reprint

The present Edition has been published from a conviction of the clearness with which this fundamental doctrine of Christian faith has been treated.

In this reprint, the folio edition, A.D. 1647, has been copied as closely as possible. Two obsolete expressions have been exchanged for others of the same meaning, and the word “not” has beep inserted in page 44, the omission being considered an error of the press.

May God the Holy Spirit, whose gracious office is to take of the things of Christ and show them unto men, bless the work to the edification of many souls, that they may grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
