PR Æ FACE.
Have lately met with a certain book, which, though written without any reference to
Dr. Middleton's Introductory Discourse, and with a view quite opposite to it, is yet so particularly connected with the subject of it, and consequently, with the present debate, which is grounded upon it, that I have thought it necefsary, on this occasion, to give the reader a short abstract of it, as a proper preface or introduction to the following remarks.
The purpose of it, as it is declared by the Title-page, is, “ To give a true and compre“ hensive view of Christianity: or to set forth " the complete duty of a Christian, in relation “ to faith, practice, worship, and rituals, with“out regard to any modern Church, Sect, or
Party; as it is taught in the holy Scriptures, “ was delivered by the Apostles, and received
by the universal Church of Christ during the first four centuries. The whole laid down in “two Catechisms; the first, for the use of “ Children; the second, of more knowing 6. Christians.”
