Excerpt from A Defence of Modern Calvinism: Containing an Examination of the Bishop of Lincoln's Work, Entitled a Refutation of Calvinism

Thbauthor's first intention was merely to incorporate a few Strictures on Bishop tomline's Refutation in a new edition of another work, on Divine Equity and Sovereignty, -which he still means to publish. This design was accordingly announced; but finding many of his friends desirous of having the Strictures in a detached form, and containing a pro fessed Reply to his Lordship's attack on modern Calvinists, he has taken their advice; and now offers his Examination to the candid perusal of the dignitar)r whose work is the subject of it, and to the tribunal of the public.
