The historie of the Church. The second part. Containing a discouerie of the noueltie of popish religion. Wherein not onely the inuenters, maintainers, and gainsayers thereof, together with the grosse abuses, absurdities, and inconueniences which are to be found therein, are expressed: but also all doubts are cleared, popish obiections answered, Scriptures and fathers, by them falsly peruerted and vilely abused, rightly interpreted: the truth confirmed, their falshood detected, by the Scriptures, ancient fathers, generall councels, and diuerse of the papists themselues. Profitable to confirme the strong, to strengthen the weake, to bring backe those that are fallen, and to furnish knowledge vnto such as are ignorant. A worke worthie to be read, and easie to be vnderstood by all. Digested into 34. treatises. By the famous and worthie preacher of Gods word, M. Patrick Symson, late minister of Striueling in Scotland [electronic resource]
