Two large volumes. A classic on the Church and worship! This is one of the most extensive studies of its kind ever compiled. Nothing compares to it on this subject.
Volume one deals with the nature and power of the church, containing a lengthy explanation of the Church in its relation to the state (which is one of the best treatments of this topic to be found anywhere!). From there it deals with matters in regard to which church power is exercised (i.e. in regard to doctrine, ordinances, the instrumentality and time of public worship ‚Äď with a discussion of holy days, Independency, and confessions). Volume two continues where volume one left off, providing a lengthy section on the sacraments, covering the parties in whom the right to exercise church power is vested, examining crucial points concerning Christian liberty, comparing the Popish, Prelatic, Independent, Congregational and Presbyterian systems, etc. If you are interested in Church issues, it is not likely that you will find a better set.
